I'm nervous...but here goes!

In a few hours I'll be going to my FIRST EVER REAL LIVE chess club meeting.  Yes, it's the first one in my entire life.  I know, I know, I've hesitated a bit but I realized that in order to get better I should probably play some OTB games as well.


I'm totally nervous. What if I dont find mates? What do I DO when I find CM? Will I rememeber German notation instead of English notation?  I've never used a chessclock before either. How does THAT work?????   I know I'll probably play against some younger (and brilliant) people.


Thanks to BurgerQueen and RetGuvvie for some advise and reminding me that I play chess for the fun not for the glory.

Catch ya later and have a great night.
