Madison College Chess Club

Fall 2020: If you want the Chess Club to be active this year, we very much need student leadership.

We are on Chess.com: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/madison-college. Send a request to join the Chess.com group. Only the free basic membership is required to join. Challenge Mr. Alexander with username Geovance.

Madison College Students: Join the club using the WolfPack Connect App on your phone or tablet (desktop app coming soon). This is a new networking tool for clubs and Student Life this year. This is now the official roster, so please join and create a profile so we get credit for your membership. Download the new WolfPack Connect phone app from the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store, or use the web sign-in from the Current Students page on the Madison College website. Sign in with your campus email/username, then search for Chess Club in the groups to find us.

The Chess Club needs student membership and leadership to take on scheduling and promotional roles for the club. Please contact Mr. Alexander  to volunteer to help out.

Madison College Chess Club Officers – 2020-21

We are in need of all club officers after the club shut down in March 2020 due to COVID rules and the campus closures. Please contact Mr. Alexander if you are interested in helping to resurrect the club in some new form this year. This will require active student leadership. Just a couple people can be enough to take charge! The only qualification for officers is that you must be a currently enrolled student.

 

Contact George Alexander (galexander@madisoncollege.edu or 608-246-6187) for more information.

Chess Sets on Reserve

We also have 2 chess sets on reserve in the Truax Library. You may check one out for use on campus from the circulation desk. The Student Achievement Center also has 2 chess sets to be used on site (A2100 at Truax).

Outside Tournaments

The club can travel to other tournament events if there is interest. Some funding may be available to support club activities. See the Wisconsin Chess Association website for upcoming events. Fall 2020 - still not much happening over-the-table, but there are a few online tournament events out there.
