Upcoming Events and Chess Tournaments:

Please note that the Flagstaff Chess website is not affiliating with the USCF due to a significant moral/ethical policy change in the July 2018 issue of ChessLife.*

However Flagstaff Chess encourages folks from all walks of life to sit down together and enjoy the Royal Game.
Be who you were created to be.  Play fair, be honest.  Don't cheat yourself and don't cheat others.

Here are some FREE, no membership required chess opportunities:

Stop by Bookman's on Wednesdays 5-9pm for casual pick up games.

Also Your Pie Pizza (by Staples) Mondays 6-9pm.

Buy some food or drink to say "Thanks" to the proprietors for allowing us a safe place to play.

*The United States Chess Federation announced that it will allow men who pretend to be women to play in women's only sections and tournaments.   Also known as their new 'transgender policy' - a type of policy that has been creating a lot of problems in competitive sports.    The USCF board of directors needs to realize that tournament chess is already dominated by humans with the XY chromosome pair.  Flagstaff Chess recognizes the uniqueness of females and their under-representation in the chess world.  Female only tournaments were created to encourage women and girls to play competitive chess by providing a safe, healthy and comfortable atmosphere.  Therefore Flagstaff Chess Club will not support the USCF until they remove this immoral and harmful policy, and restore the uniqueness of female only tournaments and female only prize awards.    As always Flagstaff Chess Club will seek to promote a healthy environment for everyone who wants to play chess.
