Triangle Area Chess Club

Where Dual Sites
Triangle Chess Center
5920 S Miami Blvd, Morrisville, NC 27560
Most Saturdays there is open play or a tournament at the Triangle Chess Center (TCC) which is about a 1/2 mile away from the McDonalds from 1-5pm. Most of the players have migrated there. On days where there are tournaments being played it is probably better to play at McCafe if you are not playing in the tournament.

5/15/2017: Dual sites. Folks are now playing most Saturdays at the TCC. We are keeping the McCafe as a alternate site for days the TCC is not available or for folks who want to meet up early or stay late. On days there are tournaments, it is best for those not playing to be at McCafe so as not to bother the folks playing in the tournament. Tournaments run by TCC usually are the first Saturday of the month and ones run by TACC will be there on the off Saturdays. We could even  do a last minute one there.

Always check your e-mails on Saturdays for last minute announcements of tournaments.
