POT LUCK SUPPER
Players are invited to bring shared-dish food for a pot-luck supper starting at 6:15.  We enjoy some great cooking and getting aquainted with one another.  The first two potlucks (August 27 and September 3) were great successes.  You don't have to be a gourmet chef!  Just bring something you like, or pick something up from a deli or caterer, and come join the fun.

If you don't wish to particpate in the potluck, please arrive no later than 6:50.

  We start and end this event promptly.  As examples, on August 20 and August 27 we played 21 boards and were done by 9:30.  If the movement calls for 24 boards we will be done before 10:00, no later.
