WCGC is an affiliate of U.S. Chess Federation, Hawaii Chess Federation, Chess Express, Inc and Amercian Go Assoiation. The chess/go club 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.
