Vancity Multi-Week Classical

Play a full slow chess tournament over two Sundays. Join us for our first ever classical tournament on December 4 and 11!

As a separate event, you can also get a game of yours analyzed by a chess master, or try to beat one of them yourself. Vancity Chess and Juniors to Masters Chess Academy are teaming up to hold a Christmas Fundraiser. All donations will go to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, whose mission is to empower families in need to create great Christmas experiences for their kids.
