Club Continues To Grow: Welcomes Two New Members

Posted: 12/03/2014 by Ian in Club News

Dave Whiting and Nick Sayers joined the club last night and are now participating in this years Club Championship. Nick has been to the club on and off over the years but will now be coming on a regular basis. Based in Tirau Nick is a dedicated chess fan playing at the BOP club in Tauranga on Monday nights, and then with us on Tuesday nights! Welcome Nick. Dave also travels quite a distance to play as he is based in Ngaruawahia. He has previously played club chess in Christchurch, and at one point for the Abergavenny Chess Club (that’s in Wales boyo) where he had a respectable rating of 1880. I see from the the Abergavenny Chess Club ‘s website that they meet upstairs at the Kings Arms Hotel, a late sixteenth century coaching inn. I hope room G2, Hamilton Boys High School, can compare favourably to Daves former haunt! Dave started well in the tournament last night with a draw against Eddie. Welcome Dave.
