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.
