Quick note about the Harwick
The Rochester Chess Club / Mayo Clinic Chess Club is very fortunate to have such a nice facility to use for our events. The Harwick custodians and security officers ask that we keep our meetings to the large South Cafeteria. The vending machines and bathrooms are fine to use but they would like us to stay out of the conference rooms and the kitchen. Please ask Dennis, Mitch, Jack or Matt if you have any questions about those rules.
