    Hello, my name is Tyler and I play chess in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. Currently, the Battle Creek club meets every Thursday, 6:30-10:00 at the cafe in Barnes and Noble, attached to Lakeview Square Mall. As for the Kalamazoo Club, a group of us meets at Tim Horton's every Sunday night. The time varies for that, but it is usually around 7:00 until they close. If anyone would like more information, send me a message and we can exchange phone numbers.


    Warm Regards,

    Hello everyone!

    I live and work in Kalamazoo (KVCC-Arcadia Campus) and play 5 min. games everyday.  I haven't played a live game in years, but would be interested in doing so with individuals who exhibit sportsmanship and class.

    Please contact me at 504-316-2078 if anyone wants to meet on campus to organize a regular meeting of chess enthusiasts. I'm also a good cook, so tasty things to eat could be an incentiveLaughing

    For those in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area who want to play chess, here are a few times and places where a gathering of chess players meet every week: Sunday night at the Arby's on Gull Road, on Monday night at the Old Dog Tavern (this is a newer gathering, there is an effort underway to get more people to come) Tuesday afternoon at Kellogg Community College (somewhere on campus, I don't know exactly where) in Battle Creek,and on Thursday night at the Barnes&Noble cafe in Battle Creek and at Sweetwaters Donuts down the road after B&N closes. I think there is also still a gathering on Sunday afternoons at the Bigby Coffee shop across from Target on Westnedge Ave, but I think this is a pretty small group.
