The Grande Prairie Chess Club has been in operation for over 35 years. We currently meet on Tuesday nights from 6 PM to 9 PM in Room H-211 at the Grande Prairie Regional College.
Please Note: We have re-located to Room H-211 effective immediately (until September 2019) as the College is doing renovations to our normal meeting room. Room H-211 is the first classroom to the right of the main entrance if you walk up the main staircase to enter the college, on the 2nd level.
We don't have a President or Vice President. But we do have some awesome volunteers: Chris Kaut, Brian Redmond, Paul McGinnis, Jason Geen, Wade Caughlin, Tim Pradzinski and others help run things and help new players get better. We also have a bunch of awesome players from beginner to expert. You are sure to find a game and to meet someone new.
There is no charge to play casual chess at the Grande Prairie Regional College on Tuesday nights.
We do encourage our club members to purchase a membership from the Chess Federation of Canada (CFC). A member of the CFC is entitled to play in any CFC rated event in the country and to receive a monthly Canadian Chess Newsletter. CFC membership can also be purchased in person at a club that runs CFC rated tournaments.
