Club Activities Suspended

Due to COVID-19 the SWCC has suspended all activities

Like many other other organizations, the Southwest Chess Club is doing its part to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus by cancelling all club meeting dates until further notice. The Hales Corners Challenge XXXI, which was scheduled for April 4, has been cancelled. Please check back in May and follow the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC and other health organizations.
