I've been playing casually since 8th grade. I'm good enough to beat most other casual players, but I consistently lose to everyone that takes it seriously (tournament players, professionals, people who read chess books, etc.). I'd be up for it.

I play it a bit but not many other people I know do. I can beat my housemate at it every time, but the computer always kicks my arse. Maybe because I usually approach a chess game a bit like poker with another person, and attempt to bluff them while I'm playing the game.

I'm very rusty, I studied chess and played a few USCF tournaments back in the '80s. I'm curious mostly where the game has gone since deep blue beat Kasparov in '97.

p.s. Janine, yes I'd participate in a club
