  1. Club Information
    Currently, we meet to play on Mondays and Wednesdays at the main branch of the Klamath Falls Library downtown, starting at 1pm until about 4 or so. Also, until school is out for the summer, we meet at the Old Town Pizza restaurant on Main street, from 5:30 or 6:00 until no later than 9:00pm. All meetings are open to players of all ages and rankings. The Tuesday evening meeting is meant to accommodate scholastic players and persons who work during the day, and we hope to see lots of students and some new participants there.

    One of our members, Dave Kurfman, is a tournament director, and our club will sponsor USCF-rated tournaments from time to time.
