What I wrote at Reddit - Chess.
My 1st chess club I was 16 years old in the year 1965. It was in the back room of a bowling alley in Chicago. They gave me some beer to drink. I came back every week and because I was a student everything was free. They took the time to teach me lots of stuff. It was wonderful. Lots of bright people there including a University of Chicago professor and a World War One veteran.
These days chess clubs are obsolete because we have the wonderful Lichess.org. My living room is an international chess club. I never imagined this was possible in 1965.
