Important Notice: The Hult Chess Club meetings at Schnuck's are canceled until further notice

The Governor's state of emergency has canceled all meetings with more than 10 or more people until certain criteria are met which includes social distancing of 6 feet or more. Chess may have to wait until the social distancing is lifted as players at the board will not be the required 6 feet apart. This, of course, means that all chess after school programs and over the board tournaments are cancelled as well. The Monday night adult club is also closed until further notice. Check with your chess coach for concerns about private lessons.

The Hult Chess Club will meet every Friday night at 6:30 on Zoom with a 7pm tournament on chess.com. We will be letting the chess.com computer do the pairings.
