Re: Sponsored Chess Read

Actually it looks a really interesting book. I'm sure you will enjoy it (perhaps I should change my vote?!) Here's the link to the review on Chess and Bridge

Re: County matches 2011-12 Season

Thanks Ray. I pressed refresh and up they popped. I see Worcestershire are in top spot. I hope we can keep it up!

Re: County matches 2011-12 Season

Hi Ray

I've checked the MCCU website but this weekends results for the u120- teams don't seem to be there.

Re: Worcestershire county teams

Worcestershire continued their unbeaten run with a 9.5 to 2.5 win over Lincs in the u120 section. How long can we keep the baton in the air? It passes to Giles Stanton's u140 team next Saturday.

Re: Preston Chess Congress - Pictures

Ian- I found your message on facebook. I couldn't see the pictures of Bolton yet but I'll keep looking.
Malcolm - a picture of the prizegiving would be even better. It would be good on our (Redditch Chess Club) facebook page and I should be able to get it in the local papers.
Thanks both

Junior Teams Donation page

The new Junior Director has set up a donations page on the ECF website. What a good idea. I've put this on here as it occurs to me that people who are members anyway will have less to pay once the new membership scheme comes in. If they are in a position to put the money they are saving back into ch...

Preston Chess Congress - Pictures

Just wondering, was there anyone at the Preston Chess Congress this weekend taking pictures? One of Redditch's players, Steve Crockett won the under 145 section and a picture would be good to publish in our local papers and on our facebook page.

The Worcestershire Minor Open team are playing Derbyshire tomorrow. Best of luck! I hope we can keep the Worcestershire bandwagon rolling.

Re: Practical Issues with Implementing ECF Membership

And that, of course, is what I've been arguing into the hearing of the deaf for months. But the utterly 'deaf', and presumably disinterested, Board, CEO & Council, prefer to ignore the matter; prefer indeed their quiet life raking in our cash but granting them their votes. It's a disgrace. Repairin...

Re: Summary of Funding Proposals for AGM

In our club we have quite a few people who are members of more than one club. We also play in 3 leagues so we would definitley prefer the central pay option. We would of course offer help to anyone struggling with this and those without online access. There is also the issue of privacy. We have peop...

Re: Does publishing games give anyone an advantage?

It doesn't need to have a term at all does it? Surely just an explanation of why it wasn't the best move in that situation is what was needed. Once you categorise a move in that way the person who played it is going to feel categorised. For a junior that can be difficult.

Worcestershire county teams

Worcestershire have scored a hat trick in the opening county matches of the Season. On 8th October the under 140 team beat Shropshire 9½ to 6½. Then on 15th October the u120 team (current MCCU champions) beat Warwickshire ( current national champions ) by 6½ to 5½. Finally, again this Saturday, ...
