About

East Aurora Chess was a club started out of love for the game, and a lack of time.

I love to play, and I love to build communities, but I also have a family with young children and a busy job. In talking with other locals who love the game, but lack the time, I decided that a local club on week nights is in order. Many of us don't have the time to go to large events on weekends or the network to set up our own. We are based in East Aurora, NY, but we welcome players from everywhere! We hope to be a staple in the Buffalo/Niagara region for chess.

This is currently a labor and expense of love, if you would consider donating to East Aurora Chess in order to help grow chess, it would be greatly appreciated. Some of the costs included in running a club are: USCF fees, chess boards, website hosting, advertising, labor, and prizes for events
