The Rudolf Rocker Chess Club meets once a month on a Saturday, noon to 4pm for drop in, casual chess. Usually this is the first Saturday of the month but it may be bumped to a different Saturday due to holiday closures, facilitator availability, or local tournaments. See schedule below.

We meet at the games tables on the 2nd floor of the Millennium Library (251 Donald St at Graham).

On other Saturdays where the library is open but where no facilitator is available, there are almost always other chess players at the library games tables in the afternoon, usually with  an expert level player amoung them. Come on down and see who else shows up! (Bring your own equipment if you can)

See the schedule below for days where a facilitator is present and exceptions in the schedule:

  • November 24, 2018 — Facilitated by Mark Jenkins, free beginner lessons available. Live coverage of round 11 of 2018 World Championship will be available. Start time extended to 11am.
