REGULAR HOURS OF OPERATION
Thursdays evening: 6:30pm-9:30pm
This is our “Scholastic Knights” evening, geared towards K-12 students – learn to play, learn simple tactics. And yes, even adults are welcome! Special evening rate for all: $4.00. Every first and third Thursday of the month – no lecture. Instead, there will be a G/10 – unrated – 4 rounds.
Friday evenings 6:30pm-12:30am
Every Friday evening (with a few exceptions for when we have weekend tournaments with the first round on Friday evening), there’s a USCF rated tournament ($12 for DCC members /$22 for non DCC members, includes 1 month DCC membership) and there are usually a few players who opt to play casual chess. These tournaments start at 7:30 PM, with subsequent rounds following quickly. On the first Friday of the month, this will be Quick rated (G/24, 5 sec. increment), other Fridays will be holding dual rated tournaments.
