The Twin Ports Fianchetto --- Team Cold Climate

  • Duluth, MN International 
  • Formed: Sep 7, 2008
  • This is a group for those chess warriors living in cold climates, or maybe you were born in a cold climate, or maybe you'd like to live in a cold climate, or perhaps you once had a dream in which the temperature dropped below freezing, and you have nothing better to do on a cold winter night than play the great ancient game... and it shows. We will participate in as many team matches and vote chess matches as possible. Anybody from anywhere is welcome. If you're not from anywhere that's fine as well. All skill levels are absolutely welcome, and feel free to invite friends from anywhere in the world!
