Do you know of any Chess clubs that would be closer to me. I live in Media Delaware County.
Hi Betsy. Maybe. Main Line Chess Club now meets in Ardmore. Main Line Chess and Games (store with club) meets in Paoli. Tri-Bridges meets in Exton (I think). Are any of those close to you?
is this still going on this year
No. I stopped running this league when I left the Philadelphia area in the summer of 2017. Another director revived it later, but it has not run since the pandemic.
