CUGOS runs meetings on most days during the week, both inside and outside University
term. You do not need to be a member of the society or
the University to play at any of our meetings.
The main meeting during University term is on Mondays from 8:00 pm (see below). This meeting normally consists of a half-hour talk from Charles Matthews and then general playing time. If you are a University beginner, a Monday meeting would be an ideal first session to attend.
Monday evenings: Term-times only. This is the major weekly meeting for students (though is open to everyone), and takes place in the Buttery, Clare College from 8:00 pm. To reach the buttery, enter Clare Old Court (off Trinity Lane) and turn right at the centre of the quad, entering the Hall corridor. Ignore the Halls to left and right and instead go straightahead and down the stone staircase. The staircase opens out to the buttery. There is a Clare College Map with the Hall marked.
Tuesday evenings: There used to be informal meetings at The Castle Inn, but due to lack of attendance these are not running anymore. If you would like to reinstate them, please email the club.
Wednesday evenings: (Junior Chess and Go Club, St Augustine's Church Hall on Richmond Road, 6pm to 7.30pm)
Thursday evenings: Throughout the year we meet on Thursday evenings in the TV Room on the top floor of the University Centre, Mill Lane, 7-9 pm.
Friday evenings: If you prefer a less formal atmosphere then on Friday evenings we meet from 7:00pm to closing time (which is normally 9:00 pm) at the internet café CB1, 32 Mill Road. These meetings continue through the year.
Saturdays: Often go players will be found in CB1 from 5pm until closing at 8pm.
Sundays: There are now frequently informal Sunday meetings at CB1 from around 4pm.
We also help run the Junior Chess and Go Club in collaboration with the Cambridge Chess Club. It aims to teach chess and go to primary and secondary school children. There are meetings every Wednesday during school terms, and occasional coaching sessions. It is run by Paul Smith. The contact e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
