BCS offers a Tuesday evening chess class in Piedmont from 5:30 to 7pm every week. The registration for this class can be found under “afterschool classes”, or click the link below.
The first winter session will run from November 6 to December 18 (no class on Nov. 20). The second winter session will run from January 8 to February 12. The format will be a half hour lecture by instructor Stephen Shaughnessy followed by a USCF-rated tournament game with a time control of G25/d5 (meaning each player has 25 minutes to complete their moves plus 5 extra seconds per move). All ages welcome, although the lectures will be geared towards experienced players of strength 500-1500 USCF.
Stephen Shaughnessy has taught chess classes in Piedmont schools for over a decade and has created this class to allow Piedmont residents a place to play rated games and expand their chess skills. Players can also drop in for just the rated games from 6-7pm for a fee of $6 per game. Prizes for each Six-week tournament will be determined by how many people participate. Children and adults are welcome to enroll in this class.
