About US

WCGC is an affiliate of the U.S. Chess Federation, Chess Express Rating, Inc and HCF,  just recently American Go Association. WCGC is the proud sponsor of the Hawaii Interscholastic Chess League – (HICL). We are also the sponsors of our new club the “Kailua Chess Group” we give  short lessons at both Windward Chess & Go Club and Kailua Chess & Go Group! Our main goal is to promote Chess and Go for the community to enjoy and to find mentors for school chess programs. WCGC combines educational and social activities.

Members come to play, to learn, and to get together with old friends and make new ones. The players, no matter what their level of skill, experience, or age – speak a common language, and one that is often not understood in other areas of a person’s life. The rivalries are friendly; the friendships are competitive. WCGC can offer a wide variety of activities. There can be skittles, speed chess or rated games, etc.

Club activities can include simultaneous extibitions, lectures, and even formal lessons, EVERY member is important to the success of the chess / Go clubs. We also sponsor the Oahu Go Club see below for details! See USCF articile on “Chess & Go a continiuum” book!
