Lichess Montréal Meetup 2018 Report

NoJoke Announcements

The Lichess community meets IRL.

Yesterday the Lichess team hosted a public meetup in Montreal. It took place at the scenic Mount Royal Park. These events have been getting steadily more popular and this was the biggest one yet. Many thanks to everyone who participated!

Food, drinks, and t-shirts were offered free of charge to all attendees. Many played games of chess and others simply enjoyed hanging out with their fellow chess players. Here is a nice game between two Lichess team members:

We don't know yet when or where the next meetup will take place but stay tuned to the standard modes of communication to find out:
