17 June: Bournemouth Club Chair Paul Errington has announced the club has moved to Winton from Kinson and to spacious and impressive new surroundings. Club evenings will be Tuesdays, 7pm to 11pm (so no longer Monday afternoons). The address is Winton Liberal Club, 521 Wimborne Road, Winton BH9 2AW. There is parking at the back, just down a side road, explains Paul. The Liberal Club has a bar.
Their new season will start earlier than usual – on Tuesday evening, 2 July’19.
Paul Errington would like to thank 2 chess colleagues for their considerable help with this project. Martin Simons for the initial idea and suggestion of the Winton Liberal Club and also Eric Sachs for much support setting up all the arrangements. Paul commends Eric for his “valued business acumen”.
The Bournemouth Club feel their excellent new premises, more central to Bournemouth than before, give very good potential for membership expansion. They would especially like to strengthen their team in B&D 2. Their “B” team will be in B&D 4 next season, but they would also like to enter B&D 5 and again have a Bacchus team for emerging players new to league chess. So they are keen to recruit additional members of all standards. The contact is Chair Paul Errington and his number is 07769 829891.
