This Weekend's Events and ArtBeat Festival

This weekend, we will be hosting the Boylston Chess Foundation Master Challenge, a two-day, FIDE rated tournament open to BCF members rated 2200 and above. Live commentary will be provided by Grandmaster Larry Christiansen and National Master Carey Theil. It should be a fun event! On Saturday, we will also be holding our Summer Open, a G/90 swiss. Players in both tournaments should be aware that the City of Somerville will be holding its annual ArtBeat festival on Saturday -- while this can be an added attraction between rounds, it does mean that much of Davis Square will be closed to street traffic. The city has sent out the following e-mail: "[T]he following streets in the Davis Square area will be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 21st: Elm Street from Grove St. to Davis Square; Holland Street from Buena Vista Road to Davis Square; and Day and Dover Streets within one block of Davis Square." Davis Square is still fully accessible by T, and some street parking should still be available.

For people who usually park in Davis Square, another option for you is to park at the Alewife T station. You can park all day there, and it is only one stop to Davis Square.

ArtBeat is a lot of fun!
