REGULAR HOURS OF OPERATION

Wednesday evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm  STARTING IN JANUARY 2017, PLEASE NOTE THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH THE CLUB WILL BE CLOSED.  THIS MAY LAST FOR JUST  A FEW MONTHS – SO PLEASE STAY TUNED. 
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!

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 / $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.
