What we're about

Love to play chess already? Want to learn how? Want to meet new people? Join us!

We welcome members of all levels! We are a friendly group and you will get a warm welcome from the first time you come to one of our events. We make it a point to ensure you can always find us and that any questions you have are answered.

The events themselves are typically informal and people show up and play anyone who wants to get a new game started. Some people like to play regular long games and others like speed games. We have strong players and those that just know the basics.

Update:

We are back to meeting in-person again! Check this page for updates for chess meetups.
