May 4th concludes this year's Club Championship. Our four finalists competing for the title this year are: Martin Phillips, Ed Rysal (last year's champion), Zac Schuh, and Ethan Stech. Round 1 was completed on April 13th, round 2 will be completed April 27th, with the four and final round May 4th. The public is invited to play chess with other members while our finalists duke it out for the crown. (see About the Club for location and times.)
March 2018 is membership drive month. We currently have 20 paid members as of April 23rd. Membership is $10/yr and is required to play on our Ladder and in our Club Championship since 1974 to defray the costs of these activities. Chess is available to all in the community informally (non-USCF rated) without membership.
