Club update – 27 July
This week, term 3 kicked off for our Junior Club, with several keen kids along for the first time. The Club now has, for the first time in its history, as many, if not more, junior members playing Chess than it does senior members. While the new separate Junior Club model has worked well in attracting younger players, a lot of credit is also due to the dedicated work of Club President Gordon, along with his with Andrea.
Meanwhile, rounds 7 and 8 of the 2021 Winter Cup (at 25m + 5s) were played this week in the senior Club. With 2 final scheduled rounds left next week, Gordon now has a near uncatchable lead on 7½, followed by David Paul on 6, and Ross and Geoffrey on 5½. Latest results and standings here.
