Calendar of Events

We meet on Saturday afternoons for casual games, and also on the 4th Wednesday of each month for a chess lecture at the library. There's no charge to participate, but please support the café by buying something to eat, drink, or take home for later. They're kind enough to let us meet there, so let’s make sure they feel our appreciation!

Other Stuff

You can join our Facebook group to connect, chat, share games, or whatever. We also have a club and a Lichess team so members can find and play each other online.

Read about our little club and see some pictures here in this issue of the Mechanics' Institute's chess newsletter.
