we've chosen the hickory street bar and grill as our base camp for the human scale chess
game. it is located at 800 congress, the corner of w 8th and congress. for those of you studying the chessboard, this corner is f4.
a map to the location.
plan to meet me at hickory street at 12:30p on sunday if you are playing a piece, so we can meet you and get your cellphone number. if you can't be there at this time, feel free to email me and we will make other arrangements. hickory street will also be the place you'll return to if you get captured. the first beers are on me.
intermittent rain is predicted for sunday, albeit only a 30% chance. we plan to go forward with the game
regardless of the weather so please dress appropriately and bring umbrellas or rain gear if it looks inclement on sunday morning. and don't forget to wear black or white, depending on which side you are playing.
thanks to everyone who spread the word, we made a mention in the austin chronicle (unfortunately, they got the date wrong!). to see it online, visit this link and scroll down to "volunteer calls":
