    I think you have to pay to play--I'm not sure about merely spectating.

    It would be a good idea to acquire a club chess set quickly (I got mine from Amazon for $25).

    Google Maps estimates the walk at about 3/5 mile, or 12 minutes

    Hello! I hope all is well.

    3 questions:

    1) If I'd like to just come and see what ACC is like, do I still need to pay the $50?

    2) Am still a rookie in the world of chess, so I apologize if this question seems ignorant, but, when I do visit ACC, should I bring my own chess set, or are there sets on hand?

    3) How long of a walk is it from Clarendon Metro to ACC?

    Thanks Much!
