2011 Chess Night # 2- Tuesday, December 13

The Manitoba Chess Association will close out the year with a night of informal  chess related activities.
We tried this in August; over 40 chess enthusiasts enjoyed several activities. It was such a success that we decided to try it again.

Renew acquaintances old and new !
Shoot the breeze about Carlsen's latest exploits
Shake off  the rust with a few blitz games !
Listen to a lecture on pawn sacrifices from a Master !
Buy and/or sell chess books !

Drop in any time on the evening of December 13 to room 4CM42 at the University of Winnipeg.
There is no admission fee.

There are a couple of Scheduled events, but don't feel compelled to participate- you may wish to just hang out.

7:00 pm.  Doors Open
8:00 p.m.: lecture: National Master Jonathon Zaczek on 'Pawn Sacrifices in the Opening. Free to all

Through-out the night (approx 7:00 - 10:30)
Informal games - pair off with another player - pick your time control and have some fun. 

There will also be an opportunity to make room on your bookshelves by selling a few books. Set a price, put a post-it note or sticker with your price and name on the book,and bring it for potential sale to another chess enthusiast.  There will also be a few chess clocks and chess sets for sale.
