Playtime Scheduler

Over the last couple of years, has become the unofficial go-to for FSPC members and others to coordinate games here in Sussex County. allows you to post a game and include time, location, and level of play.  If you want to coordinate a private game, you can invite friends… find a pickup game, no problem, or you just may want to watch others who play at a higher level in the hopes that you might learn a few tricks for yourself.  It has become a very useful tool to find games and I would encourage our members to use it as well.
