These clubs are located near the Eastern Iowa Airport, which makes it convenient for many fine players from the Iowa City corridor to join the games.  The club address is:

Country Inn & Suites
9100 Atlantic Dr SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404

These clubs share a theme of making the game better for all and of attracting new players.  Having that in mind, these clubs

Strictly enforce civil standards of behavior
Have recruited several qualified directors
Offer some sessions that favor players who have fewer masterpoints
Have established a mentorship program **

**In this program, an experienced volunteer is assigned to play regularly, as a mentor, with a novice partner.  The normal practice of the mentor is to take notes about the play and to review the subjects afterward.

The clubs usually are able to offer a partner, even to walk-in players.  For certain kinds of sessions, such as team games or “pro/am” games, you should contact us in advance.

MaryAnn, of Wednesday’s club, has this to say about her club and why you might elect to play in it.
