Important notice regarding COVID-19: Out of an abundance of caution, the county have closed the building until the end of the month. As of now, round 3 of the Spring Open will take place on April 6. We will update this notice if that date changes. The Spring Open finishing later will of course affect tournaments later in the year but a decision about those will be taken after the current situation has subsided.

We have details of the memorial service for David King:

St. Matthias Episcopal Church, Whittier, Ca. Ph: (562) 698-9741 Saturday, March 14th at 11am Reception to follow in the adjacent hall

If anyone has any memories of David they would like to share, please use the contact form and they will be passed on to David's sister.

A second memorial, a more casual celebration of life (BBQ etc.), is planned for Sunday, March 22nd. Details to follow.

Arcadia Chess Club meets every Monday at 6:00pm, with games starting at 6:30pm. We welcome all players, young and old, male and female, from beginners to masters.

We run chess tournaments throughout the year. Most tournaments last for six weeks and attract anywhere from forty to sixty players. We have a good blend of promising youngsters, experienced experts and masters, and many players in-between. Whatever your rating or ability, you will find people to play at Arcadia Chess Club.
