WEEKLY RATED PLAY
The CCCSA conducts a weekly US Chess rated game every Tuesday night. This is a great way for players to get weekly practice without committing a whole weekend to play a tournament. In addition, there is a free lecture before the games begin.
TNA (lecture and game) is free for members!
The Chess Center and all chess equipment will be disinfected and thoroughly cleaned several times daily
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipe stations will be placed throughout the chess center
Effective June 21, 2021
Masks and temperature checks will not be required. Participants may wear a mask if they choose to.
On May 14, North Carolina dropped most capacity restrictions, social distancing measures, and mask mandates for businesses. We wanted to give our members a chance to get acquainted with those changes. We now feel as though the mask requirement at the CCCSA is no longer needed.
See Governor Cooper's Executive Order 215 for more details.
