On your mark ...

Hello everybody!

Welcome to the blog of the San Francisco Mechanics, the 2005 Western Division winners of the US Chess League (USCL; We'll post our league match results and thoughts here as the season progresses.

The first match of the 2nd season of the USCL begins with a Monday night matchup between the two new expansion teams (Tennessee and Seattle) on August 28th; the Mechanics' first match is on Wednesday, August 30th at 5:30 PM, with the regular season running through until Wednesday, November 1st. Hopefully we advance to the playoffs, with the final championship match on Wednesday, November 22nd.

Go San Francisco!

The season opener with Dallas should be a tough match. Last year the Texas team, composed of students at The Universiy of Texas at Dallas,underperformed. This time around I expect them to do much better, but hopefully not against us!

This year we have three new team members - IM Josh Friedel, Ssm Shankland and Daniel Naroditsky-who are all under 20. Probably Dallas and the MI are the two youngest teams in the league.
