Events over the next few months – President’s Bulletin 9/5/22

Dear Club Member

This is the first of 2 messages I will be sending this week.  It will be a busy few months!

  1. Note from Andre below about the running of the Club Championship this season:

We will be organising 2022’s club Championship (on the board!) in a different format this year.

It will be an open (to club players) swiss tournament with a faster time control (45 min for each player) spread over 2 days.

I would like to accommodate the biggest number of players, so if you’d like to participate, please fill in the link below which dates you would be available:

Details on the tournament will be provided once I get an idea how many people

Thanks!

Andre Antunes

  1. There is a festival happening at the club over the jubilee weekend (1-5 June) – made up of an IM Norm event, Challengers and Blitz.  Details at the link below:

  1. The Scottish Championship will be held at the club this year, as a closed event, from July 2-10.  Again details can be found at Chess Scotland.

4. We are delighted to welcome a visit fromSchaakstad Apeldoorn to the club on 15-17 July.  I’ll be looking to form a Team to play against the visitors.  Early expressions of interest is welcome, though I’ll look to make up the side nearer the time.

Best wishes

Neil
