Dear Club Member,
Thank you to Andre for getting the Online Club Championship up and running.
Tuesday 8th December
We are playing an online match tomorrow evening against a very strong Czech side Spartak Vlasim. One of their players visited the club last summer – see the link [get Google to translate the Czech into English in your browser – their visit to the club itself in Edinburgh was probably the highlight of the trip and see a lovely photo of Colin!]. The club have contacts with GM David Navara, who has sent us a signed copy of his new book!

This Wednesday’s blitz tournament has a 7.45pm start. [Members have been emailed link and password to join: password is 1822 click on https://lichess.org/tournament/OylbsQ2a to join.]
Tuesday 15th December
I suggest we have an informal catch up on Zoom as an alternative to the Christmas evening. There will be an opportunity to play some informal chess on lichess – and can also go through the basics of online chess for any new members. [Members have been emailed link and password to join].
