April 6th – Yearly Dues Week

For the Grand Rapids Chess Center to continue its vision of expanding and promoting chess in the greater Grand Rapids area as well as around West Michigan we will be requiring yearly memberships to attend our regular chess center meetings. If you are not a member you will be given 2 guest attendances that are free before being charged a guest fee of $10 to attend.

April 6th we will have membership forms (to be posted soon) to be filled out. There will be two levels of memberships, basic and partner. Basic will be $35 a year and will give you free access to each Tuesday meeting. It will also give you a $5 discount off any of our weekend events throughout the year. It is a great deal. The partner membership will be $45, and will grant the same benefits. But, you will be included as a partner, recognized on our website, and the extra cost will go toward our continued efforts to grow chess.

Casual play is available all night!
