Contests

We're taking a little break from contests this spring/summer, with plans in the works for lots of new programs this fall.  So get outside and enjoy the good weather, or check out our online Chess group!

We also have a virtual chess club you can join!  All levels are welcome: you can learn the basics, practice, watch games and join tournaments.

Create an account, and an admin will approve you shortly thereafter.  Open to students, faculty, staff and community members.
