The venue is really nice and the landlady kindly put on free food for us the last 2 weeks. Players from other local clubs who w...

Re: A new Chess Club in Nottinghamshire

8 people turned up on Monday for the first meeting of the club, although I'm not sure if they will all be regulars. I could do with a few more new people coming down for the next few weeks while the club gets established. If anybody knows any players in the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire area that would...

Re: A new Chess Club in Nottinghamshire

Well done on the new club! And well done on choosing a pub with disabled access. I play in a pub with disabled access too. But the room for chess is up four flights of stairs! My point being: the pub may be OK, but is the chess room? Thanks David. We have 2 rooms to use for the club, one of the roo...

Goodness, that was quick. It only went live about 12:25 and Peter's found it already. I hope you like the new features.
I'm amazed. The game information goes back 10 years and even has colour & board number. Congratulations on a job well done!

Re: January 2012 grading list

The plan in the future is that the website will be updated (say) monthly, so that results can be checked as you go along.. That's good news. Might also be handy for congess organizers to give an ungraded player an estimated playing strengh if they have a few recent results on the website that can b...

Re: January 2012 grading list

Has anybody received a grading check email from the ecf yet? I normally get one every July before the grades are published with a list of my game results so I can check for any errors before my grade is published. I've not recieved an email this month. Has anybody else had one? I can confirm that y...
