Starting in November, Rudolf Rocker Chess Club meetups with an equipped facilitator and free beginner lessons will be once a month (instead of almost every week) at the Millennium Library 2nd floor games tables. This reduction in schedule is due to facilitator availability.
(contact us if you’d like to be the host a beginner friendly, publicly advertised, casual chess meetup at any location in Winnipeg using our equipment, Rudolf Rocker brand, and marketing facilities)
Normally our meetup will be the first Saturday of the month, but November will be an exception this year. We previously posted that Saturday November 17th would be our November meetup day, but the Aron Kapstan Memorial Chess Tournament has been announced for Saturday November 17 and Sunday November 18, 2018 at the University of Winnipeg (room TBA), so we encourage attending that. This open, two day, five round tournament will be using a small, 6 or less player section format similar to the Manitoba Scholastic Chess Association tournaments, but its for everyone so its an awesome opportunity to play tournament chess against folks closer to your level.
Our November casual meetup at the library has been rescheduled for Saturday November 24. Our October 20 and 27th meetups are still going ahead. In December we will meet on the first Saturday, December 1st.
On all 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.
