Overview and metadata sections

Haverford College's Chess Club began in 2005, and was restarted in 2019 by two Haverford members of the Class of 2022. The intended purpose of this student-run group is to encourage chess play, regardless of skill level or previous experience, instead choosing to highlight building community. The club meets once or twice a week, typically in the basement of Haverford's Dining Center.

The collection contains two flyers with information regarding the club. It highlights the club's activities, such as weekly meetings and sponsored on-campus tournaments.

The materials are arranged chronologically.
