Code of Conduct:
The Queens Chess Club has a zero tolerance policy for inappropriate behavior.  If you experience or witness any of the following behavior at a QCC event or on QCC social media, please report it immediately:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Abuse: Verbal or Physical
  • Intolerance of a person’s religion, gender identity or sexual orientatiom
  • Any other actions deemed to be intentionally hurtful, harmful, threatening or inappropriate

We aim to enforce the right for all members to enjoy their chess club in an environment that is safe and without risks to health, violence and aggression.

QCC hosts ‘Family Friendly’ events and may include children. Therefore we will maintain a zero tolerance towards offensive or obscene language or actions at all QCC events.

Players using excessive use of offensive or obscene language, to the point where it disturbs other players, will be given ONE warning. If behavior persists, the offender will be required to leave the event.

Any violation of the Code of Conduct, or any action that a QCC officer finds to be inappropriate or disruptive, will result in the offending player being removed from the event. Multiple offenses will result in a termination of the membership, and a life-ban from QCC events. Severe breaches of the Code of Conduct will result in an immediate termination of membership.

QCC reserves the right to revoke membership of any member, at any time.

Your chess club is always looking for ways to make our events welcoming, friendly and approachable – if you have any complaints or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

General Information: In case of last minute emergencies, call Joe Felber at his office on Friday before 5:30 pm (after that call Joe’s cell phone).   Do not forfeit without giving notice—many of our members travel more than an hour to get here!!  When you request a bye via e-mail, if your request has not been confirmed by an officer, call Joe on Friday.

Chess Training: We often receive requests for Chess Training for kids.  Our resident trainer, Jay Kleinman, offers private and group lessons.  See his contact information below.
