The Rudolf Rocker Chess Club meets every Saturday, noon to 4pm.
We are drop in, casual, and fun. Members are often willing to not just play but also share their knowledge.
On an interium basis we will be meeting at the games tables on the 2nd floor of the Millennium Library (251 Donald St at Graham) noon to 4pm except on holidays where the library is closed. Most days September-May we will have a facilitator present with chess equipment and availability to teach. Occasionally, and especially June-August we’ll be unfacilitated, show up at the library with your own equipment and see who else shows up.
Please be aware of the library’s code of conduct. Bringing food and talking is permitted, but it’s important to not disrupt other patrons use of the library.
See the upcoming schedule below. Sometimes we may hold a tournament, simultaneous exhibition (simul) or other event at another location or recommend attendance at another tournament.
Membership is free. Though, we currently don’t require funds to rent our current meeting location, cash donations are still welcome to support marketing costs and a potential future meeting space.
