The club is now in recess for the Summer, but will resume 7pm February 4th next year. See you then

Club member William Lynn is to be recognized for 36 years of dedicated service to the Hamilton Chess Community. The award will be presented by the Mayor at a council meeting (Council Chambers) this Friday, December 13, at 2.30 p.m.

Hamilton Civic Awards nominations are considered by the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Chairperson of the city’s Civic sub-committee. Nominations are considered on the  basis of the description of the service given and the quality of the supporting references included in the application. Each year the panel grants a maximum of 20 Civic Awards. This year William will be one of 13 recipients. We look forward to many more years of William’s contribution to the Waikato Chess Scene.
