Diary: 2018-19 Season

Regular club meetings take place on most Thursdays at 7.30pm.

When there are away fixtures on Thursdays, we usually do not have a social club evening. Also on those occasions when several regular club players are away at the same time. So if you do not attend regularly or are coming for the first time, it is best to check with us before you come. Currently our regular club evenings (for social chess) subject to change are:

  • October: 11th, 25th
  • November: 1st, 8th, 15th*, 29th (* = may be used for an earlier postponed match; we have also added a home match on 22nd Nov)
  • December: 13th

Christmas Break

  • January: 10th, 24th, 31st
  • February: 7th, 14th, 28th
  • March: 7th, 14th, 28th
  • April: 4th, 18th.

When we have home games it may be difficult to properly welcome first-timers (the players are heads down and concentrating). In any case we suggest you give David Skyrme a call - see contacts page - so that we can expect you and give you a warm welcome.
