Mostly adults, occasionally kids, ratings from 800 - 1900 (mostly 1400+), sometimes timed, usually not, lots of joking, fun, and chess discussion. We started in 2006 and there's always someone there on any given Saturday (typically 4-6 players), so there's always a game. No charge, no RSVPs.No membership requirements, just a willingness to travel to Hubbard & Cravens (4930 Pennsylvania Ave, Indy) sometime between 8 AM and 10:30 AM any Saturday morning to play chess, talk, and drink and eat.
