    Given with a calm voice and never in any way demeaning to the player.  

    Long time Colorado chess players will remember when 40-50 players at a chess tournament was a good attendance. The first DCC Spring Classic had a registration of 90 players.

  • DCC January 2024 Report

    "There is a grass-roots energy to the fabric of this organization, a tangible camaraderie." 

    The heading photo by Shirley Herman is a Chess Dad who brought his kids to the club just so they could play casual chess in the atmosphere of the DCC. How cool was that? I say it was way cool. Teaching a child to play chess means they always have something to do, instead of their chores or school homework :-)Nicole Hagg - Chess Mom of DCC Scholastic... Read more >>
