C.L. Smith Elementary San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo Chess Club welcomes you!  This site lists regular chess club meetings in San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay. We host tournaments and events all over the Central Coast including Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Atascadero, and Paso Robles. Cal Poly and Cuesta students welcome!

In San Luis Obispo:
Thursday nights from 6:30 to 9:30 in the café area at the SLO Target on Los Osos Valley Road.

Students are welcome to stop by for casual play at the SLO Target cafe area and Saturday mornings from 9AM - 10:30ish. Some boards are available but you might want to bring your own set if you have one. This is not a supervised time so plan on sticking around or coordinate with another parent if you want to do some shopping.

In Arroyo Grande:
Check out the adult chess program in Arroyo Grande meeting at the Woman’s Club Community Center on Thursday mornings.

In Morro Bay:
Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the "Big Board" located on the Embarcadero at the west end of Morro Bay Blvd (go down the stairs). Information and directions to Morro Bay Chess Park.

San Luis Obispo Chess Club is represented online as Play SLO on www.chess.com. Please sign up for a free account and join the team! Chess.com has a number of great features to keep in touch with the local chess community and is appropriate for adults and older children.
