Start date for this year 7th September 2019.
The closed season is approaching the end, with the season ready to commence again in September. Hope we are having a good summer?
As for myself, I have just got back, suntanned and mosquito bitten, from Mallorca with the family; after trips to Lithuania, a failed attempt to Poland and numerous trips to London with work. Chess has not occurred bar some reading on End games and of course my favourite French Defence.
I would thoroughly recommend Jesus de la Villa’s 100 Endgames You Must Know for all members.
Typically, the Calderdale League is organised, with the expected news that Todmorden / The Golden Lion is to combined with Hebden Bridge, who will now put out A – D teams. Should the full complement of Todmorden players transfers, then we will need all our top players to play to compete. Our new A Captain Nick Sykes, should enjoy that fixture…
Best wishes to Alec and Nick as the battle commences for 2018/19.
For any of you wanting to participate in the Calderdale Individual Championship, please contact Dave Patrick, who is CC’d on this email.
Finally, AND REALLY IMPORTANT, team members will need ECF Membership.
At minimum Bronze membership (£5 junior and £16 adult) is needed for Club and League rated games. This also ensure that Yorkshire joins back with England and the development of the national games. The price is not steep for 12 month and it supports junior and women’s development in chess.
Details for Liberal and Chess Club fees will follow.
Round 4 of the Club Championship has been drawn. The official date for your games to be played remains the 7th. However can I urge you to agree with your opponent to play tomorrow if possible. We don't have the club room on the 14th and if players want to agree then the 28th is the latest they can be played
