Last Monday, May 10, we held Open Play at the Park — our first in-person event in fourteen months! It was a success, with 26 people showing up to play chess. Everyone expressed joy at being able to finally see each other and sit across the chessboard again. There was much eagerness to repeat the event, so we are continuing with these for the immediate future!
We are scheduling for the next two weeks: this Mon, May 17 and Mon, May 24. We will skip the following week, May 31 as it is Memorial Day.
Location: Conejo Creek North Park (large park behind the library & senior center) Click or scroll down for Google Maps.
Our tentative meeting spot is the Lakeside Pavilion (the largest pavilion and the second that you pass on your way into the park). However, we do not have it reserved, so we will move to one of the other pavilions (Creekside or Willowbend) if it happens to be occupied.
Masks required. We will social distance as best as possible between boards.
Bring your own chess sets or clocks (we will have some available for use as well).
Post in this forum if you would like us to continue online tourneys. The frequency and day depends on your input!***
Contact us with any questions: ThousandOaksChess@att.net or (805) 990-0136
We look forward to seeing you face-to-face across the chess board once again!
