Tonight, we meet at Vesprs Coffee & Allures at 7p, as usual (626 North Alafaya Trail #105, Orlando, FL 32828).

However, next week we would like to try a new place. So on Tuesday, January 20, we will meet at 7p at The Cloak & Blaster, 875 Woodbury Road Suite 108, Orlando, FL 32828. Please stop by and let us know what you think of this new place.

As most of you know, we meet at 7p on Tuesdays at Vesprs Coffee & Allures (626 N. Alafaya Tr. Suite 105); however, we’ve had some trouble with new people finding the location.  Perhaps this link will help.  Or an embedded map like so:

Epiphany Lutheran Church
1498 Tuskawilla Road,
Oviedo, FL  32765

If you would like to play rated games, please make sure you either have a current membership with the AGA or have paid them the tournament fee.  It will not be possible for me to take money at the door as we do for our formal Spring tournament.  If you have never joined the AGA before, please send me what email address you’d like to use, and I’ll have the AGA send you a voucher for a reduced cost initial membership.  Regardless, feel free to consult the AGA’s website regarding membership advantages and costs.

You can come and play, even if you do not square up with the AGA; however, your games cannot be officially rated.

I will bring clocks and some extra boards and stones; however, if you have equipment that you can bring, please do so.  Don’t let a lack of equipment stop you from coming, though.

We have moved our weekly Tuesday 7p meetings to Vesprs Coffee & Allures for a few weeks.  We’ll see how that works out and then make a final decision about where we’ll settle.
