Welcome Chess Friends!

The Auburn Chess Club meets every Thursday night between 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM in the back room of Denny’s, which is located at 1800 Auburn Ravine Road in Auburn, CA.  Our Denny’s can be seen and accessed as you drive near the Foresthill Rd. exit off of Interstate 80.  Brian Morris started this club and ran it for many years donning one of the largest chess tournaments ever held in the Greater Sacramento Area, the 1st Auburn Power Open, and we are planning to run another large weekend tournament this year.  Our purpose is to offer Auburn and nearby regions a place to play other chess players, a place to play in club tournaments, help newcomers learn the game, and provide chess related information for those seeking it.  Most nights we conduct a Quick Chess tournament of 20 minutes per side with a 2-second delay, but sometimes we just have friendly casual play.

    Hey this is Austin, I was wondering if you coded this website using HTML and other programming languages or if you used a website that helps the contrition of the website really easy?

      Hi Austin! 🙂

      I just used a program called WordPress, which is free to me and easy to use. I have free webspace through my good friend, Michael Babigian, who is a very strong programmer (you met him at our chess club). You should be able to create a website like this in under 30 minutes (and the plain-envelope look of this site suggests it :). Sometimes I have used Adobe’s Dreamweaver (free to students, but you may have to prove you are a student … easy to do), which has a lot more tools for building web sites.

      I have taught Web Design courses and am very familiar with HTML, but once you have learned a few things about HTML it is time to use something better, like Dreamweaver. Adobe’s Flash software is fun to use for moving/3D views of things on a website. Let me know if you want to build databases. I taught CS 63 at Sierra Community College (Cold Fusion software) as a tool for handling databases, but there are cheaper/free alternatives. 🙂

      May God be with You and Yours. 🙂

      Your Friend,
      Arthur
