ECF Schools Eton College Team Rapidplay 2018

Post by Neill Cooper » Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:01 pm

This very popular event (last year there were 52 six board school teams) was due to take place on Sunday 16th September.
However, this now clashes with the UK Chess Challenge Terafinal.

Eton College have kindly offer to host on Sunday 23rd September. Does anyone know of possible clashes on that date (none are listed on the ECF Calendar).

We are expecting 50 teams of 6 players from 37 schools again this Sunday for what should again be an enjoyable day of chess.

Looking at the picture in the first post, is that someone in the bottom left clutching a (computer) tablet?

I suspect it was someone taking iPad "photographs".

"I suspect it was someone taking iPad "photographs"."

Possibly. You will be as shocked as I was when a young friend told me his mobile phone took better photographs than my proper camera. To get back on topic, Neill has (as always) got an impressive event there.
