We meet every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at the James H. LaRue/Highlands Ranch Library.

There are no fees. Sets and boards are provided. Children are welcome!

We are a "serious social chess club"... not so serious as to use USCF ratings (our current best is a C player) or chess clocks often; however, we are more social than the internet. We usually have about a dozen and a half attendees; usually a third are adults. We keep an informal ladder with about 30 semi-active members.

We try to pair individuals against their equals and hope the competitive urge motivates learning. Trying to formally teach has been frustrating -- too many of us live the Winston Churchill quote: "We all say we want to learn, none of us wants to be taught."

If you would like to be put on our e-mail and/or telephone notification lists, please contact us.
