October 20th, 2021. We are back to "normal" again. Arnold has joined us as a regular on Mondays, which always adds a bit of spice to our games. A customer at Dunkin' on Monday challenged Arnold to a game. His comment on leaving: "He's pretty tricky!" We all know that, of course, and he continues his victorious streak for yet another week. Meanwhile, the rest of us soldier on, improving slightly week over week. Good days and bad days, but always enjoyable games. Ryan pulled off a back rank mate while I was gobbling up pieces with an adventurous Queen.

We began to play in person again (cautiously and with masks in the presence of unvaccinated players and younger players). For now we are limiting the length of the meetings to just under 3 hours. We are keeping an eye on the latest news about the Delta variant and 'breakthrough' cases in Maine.
