Anyone close to Coperstown NY or Cherry Valley, Maryland NY?

Moved to upstate New York from Boston a year ago and can't find any serious chess players for OTB games near. Closest is a hour drive!!! Anyone close to Coperstown NY or Cherry Valley, Maryland NY?!?!! If not any clubs?

You will undoubtedly reach 15-20 people this way. Had you included the word "Cooperstown" in the title, you might have reached another 100 or so.

Did you search the clubs page?

They don't use internet out here it's crazy!!!! Just word of mouth. I just need at least one serious player, I love the game so much just want to meet people who feel the same. Without an hour ride preferable.

I am pretty sure that several of them are chess.com members.

I also see that somebody tried to start a chess club at the library in 2015. You might try again. The library may have a record of who tried to start it.

Where abouts are you at?  I know a couple of players in Schenevus around 1800 USCF and there's a club in Oneonta that meets in the Student Union but is that too far away?  PM me if you want more info.

Deductive

I'm located in Harford County Maryland.
