Come by for an evening of casual play. Please note that if no one shows up by 7:30pm, we close the club to conserve utilties!

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 / $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.
