The Mission of the STC BUNCH is simply to provide a way for players on the
internet who like to play a leisurely and thoughtful game of Chess, the means
and opportunity to meet with and be in the company of others who enjoy slow
chess. It is our goal to support these players through fellowship, friendship,
a comparison ratings service, a monthly newsletter, email exchange, and the
very best available technology deployed to service the membership.

The STC BUNCH, one of the oldest and most highly respected Chess clubs on the
internet, had its beginnings almost a decade ago when StarCapt recognized the
need and the desire of the players, and began the club with eighteen members
of various playing strength. Over the years, the club has grown to its present
day size of almost one thousand members, and runs the skill level gamut from
International Masters to enthusiastic beginners.

The STC BUNCH originated many of the features which are so common today on the
various chess servers, such as tournaments for slow time control players on
Sundays at Game in 45 with a 5 second increment (G45/5), one game per week
flagship tournaments such as MayMania and the STC BUNCH World Championships,
standard round robin quads and combination knockout and Wild Card Swiss
sectional tournaments.
