What we're about

Love playing chess? Join us. We'll meet once a week at a local coffee shop, and play chess. If we have enough players, we can have impromptu friendly tournaments as well.

Hi everyone, ​
​​
Reminder: We have a tournament today!
https://www.chess.com/club/the-joy-of-chess​​
5 min - Swiss
Saturday, August 21, 4:01PM

New: We have a channel on Discord.
https://discord.com/channels/878753657565368320/878753657565368322
Watch out for invites, if you want to join.

Offline: Let's be safe. Especially as new masking and booster shot guidelines are coming in. If you want to play, the Starbucks at Homestead Avenue will allow players as long as they follow government and store policies on maskings. You may or might not find a player there. (I am not going.)

For now, online will continue to be the way we meet as a community. The chance of exposure for each one of us is too big a risk.

Our time remains the same: ~3p PST ​
​​
(Yes, you need an account for Chess.com. The free tier oughta be okay.)​​

Live long and play chess!
