We meet weekly to play Chess & Go. Come and join us! See the MeetUp for details.
We are an informal club that meets to play Chess & Go. We meet one evening per week at a fun, lively (and seasonal) venue with access to food & drink. We try to cultivate a light-hearted atmosphere and a welcoming scene for beginners & experts alike.
The Bend Chess & Go Club exists because of the generosity of our hosts:
We have organizers, captains & deputies. We work together to promote the success of the club.
The club has organizers who manage the club day-to-day. We have two Club Captains, one for Chess and one for Go - the Captains drive engagement for each game at the club.
- Organizer & Chess Captain
- Go Captain
Supporting the Captains are the Club Deputies. A Deputy embodies the culture of the club and have often helped new members and beginners get started, or they fill-in for the Captains when they’re absent.
We record past Champions & Captains, and we also record a timeline of important events.
