What we're about
Welcome, chess buffs! Ashburn Chess Club offers a friendly comfortable venue year-round for chess meetups near Dulles International Airport in the western suburbs of Washington, DC. It is to continue, as it always has under the former organizer Herky del Mundo (R.I.P.), for all ages and levels, from beginning chess players to Grandmasters.
Our regular weekly club meetings for over the board chess, with or without clocks (blitz, rapid, skittles, etc.) are held weekday evenings as announced -- usually from 6-7pm until 11pm, or an hour before store closing, whichever is earlier, at Wegmans (Food Supermarket and Cafe/Patisserie), 45131 Columbia Place, Sterling, VA 20166, on the second floor indoor mezzanine, on a "first come first serve basis" as per store policy, no advance reservations required, so I and/or event host/s normally get there 1/2 to 1 hour early to setup tables, board/s, clock/s in our preferred middle mezzanine area, which is well lit. Anyone can come and play - just walk in!
Please RSVP if you can, which makes it easier for the organizer to prepare for the expected group size: attending players and their guests or parents, etc. Bring your own chessboard set and/or clock, if you wish.
We may also hold weekend tournaments, lectures, and simultaneous exhibitions from time to time. Watch for email updates!
