Welcome to ASE Chess Club. During the year we are going

students play there.
There are also many scholastic
chess tournaments. They are usually held on Saturdays.

October to June. I will be sending the tournament
announcements, and post them on-line as well as pictures
of the participants and winners with trophies and
