Please note that there will be the occasional CHANGE to the calendar – this was a work in progress and sometimes the club will move a tournament to another time frame in order to avoid conflicts.

  Yes, the results of MOTCF 2015.  Why the longer-than-usual delay?  Simply LIFE.  Riley’s mom’s health is not quite up to par – and in short, that means frequent trips up to Wellington (near Cleveland).    Family always comes first.

Wednesday evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm
Instructional Wednesdays!   7pm:  lecture followed by an evening of casual play.  Please note that if no one shows up by 7:30pm, we close the club!

Thursdays evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm
This is our “Scholastic Knights” evening, geared towards K-12 students – learn to play, learn simple tactics.  And yes, even adults are welcome!    Special evening rate for all:  $4.00.   Ms Kay Stanley runs the Scholastic Knights program – and has some outstanding help. Every first Thursday of the month – no lecture. Instead, there will be a G/15 unrated 4 rounds.

Friday evenings 6:30pm-12:30am
Every Friday evening (with a few exceptions for when we have weekend tournaments with the first round on Friday evening), there’s a quick USCF rated tournament ($10 for DCC members / $14 for non DCC members)  and there are usually a few players who opt to play casual chess.  Friday nights are our busiest evenings…so do drop for a quick game – or play in the tournament – or spend the entire evening playing chess.
