Following on from the announcements made on this website back in August, re C.S.C.’s expansion into local libraries, this is to let all members know that Thornaby library is the latest one to come on board.
The Middlesbrough and Stockton library sessions have proved to be a great success with several attendees joining some of our clubs this season.
The Thornaby sessions will commence on Saturday 3rd February and will run from 10AM – noon. The sessions will be run by Brian Whitaker and it is intended that they will be a mixture of casual games and tuition, with the make-up of the group largely dictating the course of events.
If you know of anyone in the Thornaby area who is thinking of taking up chess, but perhaps finds the prospect of joining a formal club too harrowing, then why not send them along? Of course everyone is welcome and your support would certainly be appreciated.
Click on the CSC link to the right of this notice for posters advertising the three libraries and feel free to print off copies for your clubs.
All players who participate in CCA events must be registered with the CCA and the ECF before playing.
In the league, the rules state that an ineligible player will be defaulted and the team will be penalised one match point. It is the practice of the CCA not to submit games involving ineligible players for grading.
On 23rd November, Y. Gulve played for The Buffs A v.The Knights without being registered with the ECF.
On 11th December, G.Hutchison played for Darlington C v. Hartlepool B without being registered either with the CCA or the ECF.
In both cases, the penalties have been applied as stipulated by the rules.
Please be advised that the CCA Secretary, Philip Mitcheson is currently experiencing technical issues with his computer and is only contactable by telephone (01642 815867).
The Executive and officers of the CCA would like to wish all members and their families a very merry Christmas and a successful and prosperous 2018.
