Still seeking potential female players for the San Antonio Chess Club for 2014 (Part 1)

Jan 8, 2014, 10:39 AM |

I know that I have posted blogs previously about trying to encourage female players to get involved in the San Antonio Chess Club already, but I simply want to push even harder to do so in 2014 as the aforementioned chess club as a whole either doesn't seem to care very much about it or has too much doubt about it.  However, that should motivate further encouragement of women playing the game because I grow extremely sick and tired of the fuss and excuses as to why too few women are playing the game.  So far, the only person in the San Antonio Chess Club that knowingly respects my advocacy to women playing in the above mentioned chess club is the chess club president himself.  With that being said, if there are any potential female chess players out there who want to consider joining the Chess Club in my hometown (San Antonio, TX) feel free to visit the website for all of the info concerning the San Antonio Chess Club:

You can also e-mail the chess club president about the Chess Club.  His contact info can be found in the above website.

Also, for those women out there who don't already know how to play but want to learn, I am willing to teach you but note the following: 

  • The only times that are convenient are the chess club meetings on Thursdays from 6:00PM-10:00PM at Lion's Field Rec.Center (2809 Broadway) due to other obligations that I have as a college student

I'm not a certified USCF instructor but that doesn't mean that I'm not able to teach the basics of chess to the best of my ability and if you don't feel that I don't do a good job with that, let me know.

I'm willing to teach you as much as I can for free but I'm not concerned about pay at all.  I'm concerned about seeing that more women remain involved in the San Antonio Chess Club for a long time.

        Finally, for those female players out there (preferably not too far from San Antonio) who already have prior experience with the game, I hope that you will be able to work up the courage to become more involved in the San Antonio Chess Club for a long time.
