The Victoria Chess Club


Contact us at: VictoriaChessClub@gmail.com


The club has reopened at it's (temporary) location Montery Rec Center; 1442 Montery Ave, Dogwood room, 6:15-8:45pm on Wednesdays starting Feb. 23.


Starting May, we are back to something like our regular schedule of club tournaments and casual play.   


On the second 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.


The online club that was active during the pandemic is on hiatus.. Online club details are here:
