Fellowship of the King Chess Club


& Easton Chess Club


Weekly Meetings are Back!


We put the emphasis on Fellowship!  All ages and skill levels welcome.  We meet weekly for casual games and conversation, with a sprinkling of rated games, learning opportunities and special events, in addition to the tournaments we’re known for.  We charge no dues or fees to attend regular weekly meetings, nominal entry fees may apply to certain special events, see details in the schedule below.  Please bring a chess set and clock if convenient, but don’t let that stop you from coming if you can’t!


Meetings are 6-10pm every Friday (unless announced otherwise on the schedule below) at the Easton Panera Bread, 3942 Townsfair Way, Columbus OH 43219.  Please patronize Panera while at our club in appreciation for letting us meet there!
Questions?  Contact Evan Shelton, 614-425-6514 or shelton_evan@yahoo.com.
