What we're about

*** NOTE: Some meetups have started up again (e.g., greenlake) and some meetups have been removed from the calendar due to COVID disruption and will be rescheduled when we start meeting again. Please read the descriptions for the individual meetups to see if the are actually meeting. Sorry for the confusion - hopefully we will be past this soon! But happy some meetups are happening again!

Hi everyone, and welcome to the Seattle Chess Meetup! This Meetup is intended to be a casual get together for chess players of all levels-- beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Members of this meetup range in ability from novice to master. If anyone is interested in being an assistant organizer, let me know. Assistant organizers can set up their own meetings. It might be a particularly good idea for advanced chess players to set up their own meetups.

Bottom line: This meetup is for ANYONE! Please come out and join us!
