18 Sept: Message from Eric Sachs, Poole, suggesting for this item to be shared with other clubs – just in case in might encourage a similar initiative. Well done and many thanks to Poole on a first class idea!
“We had our first Tuesday evening at the club last night and had a decent number of players (8) in a first trial session. This in a week where we have 4 league games!
We have introduced a social/fun/analysis night on every Tuesday where players of all standards can come along to play friendly/social games – including possible clinics similar to the one we presented in August on our demonstration board.
The idea is to encourage more chess on an evening where there are no league games and players can share ideas/improve their knowledge if they wish and to have a review of league games etc.
We have updated our web site to reflect this additional change.
I wondered if you wished to post something along these lines for all players to share”.
All the best,
