Presidents Bulletin – Xmas Social, Spartak Vlasim & Wednesday Blitz

Dear Club Member

Tuesday Evening Social

We have arranged a zoom meeting for Tuesday (15th December)  at 7.45pm for which members have been sent an email invitation.  It will be an informal meet, with a chance to catch up with other club members.

If there are a few newcomers I can give a quick tour of lichess online, and there will be an opportunity to play or watch some chess too.

Match against Spartak Vlasim

We lost a blitz match on Tuesday against Czech side Spartak Vlasim by a score of 46-35. Our team was Calum MacQueen, Sergio Bermudez, Neil Berry, Daniel McGowan, Graeme Kafka, David Oswald, Willie Rutherford, Duncan Grassie, Mike Ridge. Calum and Sergio led the way, scoring 8 and 7.5 /9 respectively. An enjoyable (but tough!) match.

Spartak have close ties with Czech GM David Navara, and David kindly sent us a signed copy of his book “My Chess World” for our library.
