Wednesday evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm    PLEASE NOTE THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH THE CLUB WILL BE CLOSED.  Come by for an evening of casual play.  Please note that if no one shows up by 7:15pm, the club will be closed in order to conserve utilities.

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.   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 /$15  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.
