(Old) List of Chess Clubs on CG

I believe the <Manhattan Chess Club> finally made its debut on <CG>. But it was named <Manhattan CC>. Now I use CC as an abbreviation for Chess Club all the time. But I got to wondering what <CG>’s convention was. It turns out my snapshot of <CG> players lacks any clubs with CC in their name.

Here is the list I have (Manhattan isn’t in this older snapshot):

>>> for c in [c for c in CG.C if 'Club' in c.name ]: print c
