Happy New Year Southern Illinois Chess!

I hope everyone has stayed warm this winter!  Here are our latest updates, Southern Illinois University officially approved the RSO for Southern Illinois University Chess Club.  The RSO is currently in the process of reserving space on campus for our USCF Affiliation to organize rated USCF tournaments in the upcoming months!

USCF membership will be required to participate in national rated events.  You’ll also receive access to a monthly chess magazine that includes all the latest chess news!  You can purchase your membership at the USCF tournament hosted by us or online now at:



We had an excellent crowd at our last meet up at Barnes & Nobles last night from 6-9 P.M.  We’re excited to have such an enthusiastic community surrounding chess and we’ll update the website shortly with new tournament listings and registration information.
