The club meets Friday evenings at 7:00 pm in the lobby of the Best Western hotel, near Pinhook & Kaliste Saloom. Casual chess games are played for about 30 minutes and then a round of rated games is played.
These weekly rated games comprise a tournament that lasts several weeks. The tournament can be joined during any week, and the entry fee is $10. All of the entry fees go towards a cash prize that is awarded to the winners of each rating section at the end of the tournament.
To play in the rated games, a USCF membership is required. You can purchase a USCF membership here.
