December 6th will be the final night of the year. We have “casual chess” down on the calendar, but maybe we will have one last blitz for the sake of auld lang syne if that is the mood of the evening.

Club Picnic Success

Posted: 27/11/2016 by Ian in Club News

picnic_2picnic_1The club picnic provided a fitting end to the year. We had quite a good turn out and I think people enjoyed themselves playing chess and croquet as the sun shined down upon us …. Richard looked quite comfortable sitting in the café playing all comers and there were quite a number of interested lookers-on.  Some chess games on the big board were won by committee decision management.  Matt encouraged the young ones into playing a game of soccer on the circular field where there were no corners awarded and afterwards they had a walk through the gardens.  Murray found a nice quiet place to sit and contemplate and enjoy the cooling breeze while others found it nice to remove their socks and soak their feet in Turtle Lake.
