Our free sessions include friendly chess matches via quads whenever possible, instruction, discussions, and socializing. We also have tournaments as announced.

This group is for the young and old alike. If you used to play chess or play online, this is a good, friendly group to get to know. Also, if you don't know how to play and would like to learn... come on out and we will teach you! Is is said that chess is easy to learn, but hard to master.
