REGULAR HOURS OF OPERATION

Wednesday evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm
Instructional Wednesdays!   7pm:  lecture followed by an evening of casual play.

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!    Normal evening rates for K-12 is $3. Thursday evenings, it’s only $2 and that applies also for adults.   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 ($8 for DCC members / $10 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.
