Everyone had such a great time when we did this a year ago that we're going to do it again. If all goes as planned, I'll be out there in Nichols Park tomorrow during the July 4th festivities with chess sets so anybody who wants to can come and play. The kids had a great time last year. Maybe this year we can get some adults to play.
The 4th of July parade in Hyde Park is scheduled to reach Nichols Park at about noon on Friday, so that's when things should get started. Look for us at the two concrete chess tables just south of the 54th Street cul du sac ("dead end" where I come from) between Kimbark and Kenwood. Come and play, very informal.
