Lightning results

We had 22 players contribute to our lightning night on Tuesday. Some interesting tussles, mistakes, weird options, and that was before we even sat down 😉 Bruce showed his class with a picket fence score, but I think it was still impolite to beat Regina (table below).

Next week is the start of our Purdy Cup event. All welcome!.Remember, these 1-game-a-week events are both ACF and FIDE rated.

Bob mark 2

Firstly, a big welcome to Bruce, Regina and Geoff to the club for their first games on Tuesday, who join Sushant, Sarah and Matthew who each joined at the start of the year. Its great to see new faces at the club, so please join with me in welcoming the new players. More depth and player variety will only be a good thing for the club as a whole. See you at 7:30pm Tuesday.

And remember, if you cannot make it on Tuesday, then please LET US KNOW in advance; this is just common courtesy. There is nothing worse than coming along to only find out later that your opponent is absent!
