We meet every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 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.

Next Meeting

Due to the pandemic, the chess club is currently on hiatus. We will resume meeting on November 11, 2020.

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but our first concern is for everyone's safety.
