Like the title said, Lou's getting old, and we want to make him suffer. To that effect, we're going to surprise him. Sir Kid Dave will be manning the grill(s) and there will be much silliness.

Lou's wife, Wendy, has decided that a necessary part of Lou's birthday is a Slip'n'Slide. Don't ask me, I don't why. So bring your swimsuits and plan to eat! Apparently, another tradition of Lou getting old is the shaving of someone's head. Rawlins has kindly volunteered for that endeavor. Dave and I have gotten Lou a trebuchet for the event. If the weather permits, we'll launch things at the neighborhood. Feel free to bring small fruitlike items to chuck!

Details you want
When: Saturday, 3:00pm
Where: Chez Guyon at
1430 Alamanda Drive (directions below)
What to Bring: Yourself, your swimsuit, an interest in siege engines, and feel free to bring an appetizer or a salady thing to share. No obligation on the last one.

Contact Jez akai_ink to RSVP.

From Jez:

Alright, so it's more like Chessmasters with "lasers," but you get the point.

This coming Saturday, May 14, starting at 1:00, the Chessmasters will be taking over Laser Tag at Boomers.

1801 NW First Street
Dania Beach, FL 33004
(954) 921-1411

Post here if you're interested, and include A) if you can provide a ride, or B) if you need a ride. Pass the word on to anyone who doesn't check the website, and feel free to bring a friend. It's a great way to introduce someone to Chessmasters in a non-practice situation.

Feel free to call me if you have any question!

I call it at 8 at the pub. If you're there on time, start saving seats, 'cause you know there'll be plenty more coming!

Wee! The Boy is driving from our house. Who wants to carpool?

Are we having another May Day picnic this year? It was a lot of fun last year!

I may be Ren-ned out for a while. Especially since starting my job, and due to the nature of my job, I feel the need for brain-defrag time-- time to just sit at home and do very little, like watch a movie by myself, or READ (remember that? reading for fun?).

And the only time I seem to be able to do those things are on Sundays (since Saturdays always seem to get swallowed by my family).

Just warning you guys-- it's not that I stopped loving you-- but my attendance at practice may be a bit spotty for a while.

I'll try to come for the next while, though, as pwiggily, maddiaz and pensivebard are all expecting dresses from me, and that's really the best time to discuss fabric/fittings.

Sunday BBQ courtesy of Elise and Lou [Mar. 30th, 2005|05:58 pm]

[Current Mood |boredbored]
[Current Music |08 - Hey, What Do You Say?]

Hey all --
Just wanted to send off an invitation/reminder: this Sunday (04/03/05)
is the kickoff BBQ for the Chessmasters' spring training season.
We've come a long way in the past few months, and worked hard for
weeks. Now we party.

It's been a hard few weeks, and we've earned a break. Many thanks to
Lou and Elise for putting this one together. I hope to see all of you
out on Sunday enjoying good food and great company. So here's the
stuff you want to know:

Where: Tropical Park, as usual.

1:00-6:00. Really, you can arrive whenever you want, but The Grill
won't be there until 12:30ish.

What to Bring:
Yourselves, something to sit on. Sunscreen and bugspray are nice.
Comfy clothes and closed-toed shoes if you want in on any of the
demented games that always crop up.

Anyone interested is welcome to bring a dish to share. Captain Lou
will be manning the grill as usual. Hotdogs, hamburgers and chicken
breast will be on the menu. If anyone wants to bring their own veggie
burgers (or some to share), Lou will happy to char-grill them for you.
Get that meaty flavor seared right in! I'll probably be torturing
you with something like homemade cheesecake or potato salad.

See you Sunday,

holy crap this is so weird. I was thinking just yesterday that there should be a Chessmasters community on LJ. That if someone else didn't do it soon I was gonna do it. Go AdMike and the reading my mind thing. (Hopefully you really can't do that cause that would be scary.)

Welcome to the Chessmasters LJ [Mar. 25th, 2010|03:00 pm]
Miami Chessmasters, News and General Discussion on

Basically, this is a place for us to hang out and talk about CM stuff on LJ. Considering there are so many of us here, I figured... why not?

I'll get around to customizing the layout and whatnot later, but for now feel free to post links to get everyone over here.
