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 winter-1 session will run from November 7 to December 12, 2017. The winter-2 session will run from January 9 to February 13,2018. 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). It will be held at 801 Magnolia Avenue East Wing, near Havens school. 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. The twelve weeks will be divided into two six week sessions which cost $90 per session. Players can also drop in for just the rated games from 6-7pm for a fee of $6 per game. Prizes for each five-week tournament will be determined by how many people participate. Children and adults are welcome to enroll in this class.
