International Chess Meetup Day

The International Chess Meetup Day is the 3rd Monday at 8pm of every month. That's Monday December 15th this month. This meshes nicely with the Sugar Land meetings which are on Mondays. The "official" Meetup site for this month in Houston is West Gray Cafe, 425 W. Gray, Houston, TX. For more information click the Chess Meetup Icon on the sidebar.

I noticed at least two people on the Chess Meetup site looking for a place to play chess in the Sugar Land area -- hopefully they will see my posts there or this web site and find out about the Monday meetings in Sugar Land. Maybe next month that would be a good location for the Chess Meetup? Of course, Houston is a big area geographically, and there is plenty of room and a need for more than one chess location. I see the Chess Meetup web site as a good way to introduce folks to the chess activities already going on in Houston. And, if you are aware of more, please let us know.

From Laura at www.meetup.com:

This is Laura from Meetup. I recently received your request for a link from us and I wanted to tell you it's now live. You can see your link here: http://chess.meetup.com/links.

Also, we have just added some new features on our links page that we thought you might be interested in: http://chess.meetup.com/share. This access to Meetup info is also free to use and benefits users by drawing attention to the fact that other chess players around the world are participating in group gatherings based on this common interest.

Generally Meetups are better when more people go. You can help spread the word here: http://chess.meetup.com/tellfriends/.

Thanks for linking to us and I hope you enjoy your Meetup!
