Saturday night chess!

Saturday Chess at the B’nai Israel Synagogue – The plan is to hold our first Saturday night meeting at the Synagogue on 10/19 (TOMORROW) starting at 7:00 PM.   Please bring a $1 donation and a chess set/clock.

Tuesday night – Tuesday night we will be having a casual night at the Harwick cafeteria.

Interested in being a Rochester Chess Club / Mayo Clinic Chess Club officer?!

So far we haven’t had much interest and we are looking for new faces to help out.  If you have an interest in taking a larger role within the club please email me, matt@smarterchess.com.  Thanks!

Elections 

The elections will be held at the club on October 29th and members will have the chance to vote via email or in-person in advance if they cannot attend on 10/29. If you’re interested in re-running for your current position or a different position please send me an email and I can add you to the ballot.  I know Jack is looking to move to Treasurer to fill Chris’ shoes.  I’ll be running for secretary again but don’t mind if someone else wants to fill the role.
Thanks everyone,
Matt
