Live human chess match

Hi Everyone,

After 5 years we are at last having the human chess match! It will be held in North Fork at the Mill Site on May 24th (9 am to 11 am).


We are looking for people who might donate used carpet squares for the chess board. Thity-two 3’x3′ sections are needed.

I will be playing Dale Livesey. You do not need to know how to play if you want to be one of the pieces.
Feel free to copy and put up the poster too (especially in Oakhurst)

Thanks very much,

Movie Night on Sunday March 9

This Sunday, March 9th, there will be a viewing of Alfred Hitchcock’s black and white classic movie @ the STUDIO. 

6 pm @ the Studio

A pre-play viewing event  hosted by Karen Freewoman. The play of 39 Steps is showing now in Fresno at the 2nd Space Theater (until April 19th).

For fun, as a group, we may gather 39 people to go see the play
together at a discount on a Thursday or Friday this month.  We will
pick a date after the movie on Sunday.
The play is especially funny if you see the movie first.  You can
borrow the movie also, from Karen, if you miss this viewing.
Bring potluck snacks to share.
No charge, but donations to the STUDIO are helpful 🙂
Call Karen for more details – 559.877.3061
