The club is currently meeting each Wednesday from 6:15-8:45 a the Monerey Rec Center, Dogwood Room, 1442 Monterey Ave (Oak Bay)



On the first Wednesday of each month, we hold a round of the club championship, known as the Gonnason Cup with the winner declared at the end of the year.  A round is two games with your opponent, one as white and one as black.   Time control is an active time control.


On the third Wednesday, we hold 2 rounds of a seasonal event (lasting for 4 months, 8 rounds in total).    One game against each opponent at an active time control.


Remaining wednesdays are casual chess (no formal event) although we may from time to time organize something.   Casual chess is always available on all Wednesdays.
