Just to keep you updated, we [Heathcote Arms 1] play our Birstall cup semi next Tuesday 7th at The heathcote and our last wylie cup match on 14th at the Heathcote, if we win we stand good chance of winning the Wylie cup.
On Tuesday 31st, we had a (now usual) decent turnout for Club Night. We had some practice using clocks and notation, at the same time, for our newer members. The slowing down and making note of the moves seemed to work well as, first of all, Michael gave Dave R a serious scare, and Drew pulled off a fine victory against Ray.
Only a month to go until the start of the season. There are still several people owing subs - please pass these on to any of the committee members as the request to pay our league fees is imminent.
On Tuesday, 7th September, there will be the Braunstone Rapidplay.
At the Heathcote there will be HA1's Birstall Cup match, and Rob also faces John Daniel in the Major section of the County Champs at our place. A win against John, and then David Reynolds in the final round should see Rob clinch the title. A loss to John and then a win against David, however, could possibly see yours truly collect the silverware if i manage a win against John in the last round. Good luck Rob.
On Thursday, 9th September, there is the last round of the Majors at Wigston; both Grahams, Rajan, and Sean compete in the Open section; and Dave plays Dennis Wilkins in the Minor.
There is soon to be a programme about chess on the wireless.
