    On a slight tangent, how about a chesschat.org blitz tourny on FICS some night?

    I'm all for that!! I've been thinking of the same for some time. I reckon it'll be fun. Is it possible to create a 'room' in freechess so we can just pop in there?

    I'm told ch 230 is the Aussie channel. Next time you're on, join that channel.

    What night is good for people who are interested?

    For me Mon/Wed/Thurs are the best nights. Any time from around 9pm.

    This Thursday may be too soon and I may be too tired to play that night anyway. But lets say for now that Thursday is our "club" night. If a group starts to meet for some social games from 9PM EST on Thursdays in channel 230. If that proves popular perhaps we can look at organising a tourny and advertising it here for particular nights and that way get bigger turn outs for those nights.

    I was originally thinking Blitz but there is nothing stopping us from playing whatever people are interested in, Blitz, Standard, Losers, Suicide, Bughouse and/or Crazyhouse.

    Anyone interested in playing for the fun of it just register on FICS (it's free), log on Thursday evening and look for shouts in channel 230.

    VampireGod is always in there. TanTheMan was in there the other night but I think he was scared off.

    But to answer your question, I was hoping a few people might turn up tonight for a few games.
