This club meets every Wednesday from 5:15 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. or later at the home of Don Finkey at 340 Fremont Street, Manchester, NH 03103. Club sessions recently have about 4-8 players.
Matchups are typically done by the director, using modified Swiss pairings according to club ratings and that session's win-loss record. The goal is to have as many competitive games as possible, while also providing a variety of opponents.
Timers are used for all games. During a newcomer's first three visits, time penalties are not assessed, and free challenges are permitted. Use of a 2- and 3-letter word list is also available open-book during this period, as well as for players averaging less than 275.
There are no dues, as the room is free of charge for non-profit community groups. Refreshments are not necessarily provided, but some snacks have typically been available. The intention is to keep the club dues free, unless the club decides to purchase equipment, such as games, timers, etc.
See the club flyer.

This club is included on this web site since it is relatively close to the Boston, MA metropolitan area. This is one of the only three active clubs of which I am aware in the state of New Hampshire. The other ones are the Peterborough Club #808 and Exeter Club #587.
