WE HAVE FUN!Rochester Chess Center is located near Cobbs Hill Park, at 221 Norris Drive. There will be daily outings to the park for seasonal activities (Frisbee, soccer, hiking)... so dress for outdoor action.
The annual Rochester Chess Center Picnic will be held at Mendon Ponds Park, East Lodge on Wednesday, July 8th 1pm till dark. Though we hope everyone attends the picnic, we will also still have the regular Community Chess Club games (G/80 d5) at 7:30pm at the Chess Center on Wednesday evening. Many folks choose to go to the picnic for a while in the afternoon, and then go to the chess center in the evening for a rated game at 7:30pm. Try to do both, or at least the picnic! It's is great to see everyone and enjoy the fresh air.
Picnic Directions & Details: Go South on Clover Street, cross Thruway, enter the park (turn left) at the first entrance, East Lodge is 1/2 mile on the left. Lodge is open at 1:00 pm. Fires will be stoked up at 5:30 pm. Rain or shine, the lodge will be fine. The Rochester Chess Center will also provide the chess sets, soft drinks, plates, plastic ware, charcoal and condiments. Chess sets will also be provided for unrated chess games. You bring your own food to grill and any sports equipment. This is a communal event, so please bring a dish to share: Last name A to M please bring a salad to pass, N to Z please bring a dessert to pass. Everyone is welcome, $5 per person... $15 max per family. Picnic is free to Rochester Chess Center members and their families.
