Another year, another letter from the incoming president of the McGill Students’ Chess Club! As a matter a fact, this year, the chess club will be having two co-presidents. We are excited for the year to come and are looking forward to continuously improving it. First of all, we hope you guys all had a wonderful and productive summer! For all the new students here, welcome to McGill! We hope you enjoy the next couple of years in the vibrant city of Montreal. For returning students, welcome back and we hope you didn’t miss McGill too much during the summer!
We would like to thank everyone who came by Activities Night and hope you enjoyed playing against one of our execs! Similarly to the previous years, we will be holding weekly meetings at the Trottier Cafeteria from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on Thursdays. As a matter of fact, our first meeting will be Thursday, September 21st. We provide chess sets and clocks so you only need to bring yourself, your love for chess and a smile! Don’t know any friends interested in playing with you? Don’t worry, you will definitely find an opponent (worthy to play against you) of similar strength to play against at our meetings. Furthermore, our much anticipated Gerts Night will take place on Tuesday, September 26th! Mark the date, as it will be an evening full of chess and beer! We’ll keep you updated of all upcoming events through our mail list so make sure you are subscribed. Be prepared for blitz tournaments, the Canadian Universities Chess Championship (CUCC), the McGill Open and MORE Gerts Nights!
Keeping our letter short and sweet, we would like to end by wishing you an incredible year. We hope to see you around at the Trottier Cafeteria!
