Last night was sadly Peter Hulshof’s final visit to the club as he prepares to return to Holland in two weeks. We have enjoyed Peter’s company (and that of his two girls Maimoena and Zamiena as juniors) over the brief time that he has been with us. We wish him all the best for the future.

Casual Chess For The Next Two Weeks

Posted: 17/04/2013 by Ian in Club News

We will have casual chess for the next two weeks (23/4/2013 & 30/4/2013) because of the school holidays. The Club Champs will resume on 7/5/13 and run for 5 more weeks. If you have been thinking of checking out the club then casual nights are the best place to start. After the club champs are finished we will have a few nights of more rapid fire chess with anyone welcome to join in so coming along then would be a good idea also. (Club Champ nights are member only chess consisting of longer games with the opponents designated in advance, so not a great night to check us out if you are a prospective new member)

Last night produced some close games for round 3. In the end Eddie and Hilton tied and Michael beat Graham. There are now four players tied on 2.5 points. The Crosstable and ratings have been updated. Casual chess for the next 2 weeks.

A belated welcome to Emi Ng who joined as a member in early March but didnt receive the customary acknowledgement due to an oversite on the part of Ian. Emi has been coming along with brother Daniel for some time now and has a club rating of 924 following participation in all 5 rateable tournaments so far this year. Emi brings the number of fully paid up club members to 25.
