About the event

Hello Banff Chess Club! I'd call it a successful chess meetup last night at the Pioneer Room or Robb Whyte Building (it's the ramp above Banff Public Library). We had 22 people showed up for the for this pilot meetup.

I can not do it all and I do not even get paid to organize this, so if you can help, please coordinate with me. Please arrive before 6 to help set up the venue. You can also bring food/drinks to share My main consolation are my passion for the game and the community spirit in the club. We will have the meetups an open house, meaning, everyone is welcome - learners to chess masters. Open to all ages - youth to seniors. This is casual for fun and camaraderie event. We only require you to be interested in the game. You may also bring your chess sets but we have a few to lend.

We will also collect financial donations which will be used to help operate the club and to buy chess sets for the Mînî Thnî Chess club (Morley, AB). We understand not everyone can donate because of different financial situations. Everyone is still welcome to join.
