Dates for your diary

1. The Annual Christmas Blitz tournament will take place in the club on Monday, 20th December, 2010, at 8pm.  All members welcome.  Free entry.  As usual, it´s sure to be great fun with generous prizes of wine, chocs, etc. up for grabs for players of all standards.  Note that this will be the last club night of the year, as we will be shut right through the Xmas/New Year period.  Further details to follow.

2. Following the huge success of the chess talks given by FM John Delaney, I am delighted to announce another lecture.  This time it will be presented by Darren McCabe in the club on Thursday, 16th December, 2010, at 8pm. The topic will be the underrated Centre Game (1. e4 e5 2. d4 ed 3. Qxd4). All members are invited to attend.  There will be a nominal charge of €2 for this talk, but further donations are welcome. All proceeds will again go towards the our new Junior chess club which is up and running in Kenilworth Bowling Club on Grosvenor Square and meets every Wednesday evening. For those of you who don´t know Darren, with a FIDE rating over 2000, he´s a talented up-and-coming young player on the club´s top team and an openings expert.

    Darren your very talented and will be easily over 2000 before long.its a pity i will miss your lecture as going to concert in point on 16th but maybe you can give me a lesson on it later on nice to see some unusual openings being brought into play i tend to like bizzare openings as it can sometimes throw an opponent off their game.will see you at blitz if your down regards Leon.
