Winter(2) Winners

Posted: 08/07/2021 by Ian in Club News

Poen takes out the B division with 6 points, well ahead of the second place getter on 3!. Richard first in the A division also on 6. No crosstables this time as I didnt copy them to the USB. See you next term.

The club calendar for the rest of the year is now published. We will finish this term tomorrow night with Winter (2) rounds 5 and 6. That is followed by a 2 week break for the school holidays. We will resume for term 3 on 27 July with the club rapid champs over six weeks. The time control will be a little longer this year at 30/15. The complete calendar is available here
