Time to saddle up!

Yes, the break is over, the holidays but a distant memory, the wait is over, now it is time for chess at Hobsons Bay once again! So saddle up, and get along to the club in Altona on Tuesdays for 7:30pm chess.

The club is having a casual night tomorrow to ease (no saddle sores!) yourself into the chess again. Gidday up!saddle

Grunfeld Allegro results

Below are the results for the Grunfeld themed allegro night. Well done to Dean, closely followed by Nathan and Julio. There also seem to be some new names I have not seen before, so welcome to Julio, Alvin and Peter.

This Tuesday is the start of the Koshnitsky cup, which will decide qualification for the club championship, which is very tight after 3 tournaments.
