What we're about

Welcome to the Boulder Chess Club! This is a meetup group for anyone in the Boulder area who likes to play chess. People of all skill levels are welcome. Online chess is great, but there is no substitute for meeting new people and playing on a real chess board, so please join us. Please bring a board, pieces, and a chess clock to meetups if you have them.

We will use this meetup group as a way to let people know about Boulder Chess Club events and other chess activities in Boulder. It's also a great way for us to create new chess meetups, events, and tournaments.

The Boulder Chess Club (http://www.boulderchess.com/) meets every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.
