I have tried the chess club that meets on Sundays near Billings Bridge, but I have some objections. They only seem to play bullet chess, with five minutes of time per side. I don’t think that allows enough thinking time. Also, they wanted money almost immediately.
It is appealing to arrange a situation where people in central Ottawa can meet to play informal chess for free, using whatever time controls they like.
One idea would be to meet on Tuesday nights between about five and about eight. People could bring their own boards and clocks and play against like-minded amateurs. Any takers?
