Chess games should not be played during the AGM.
Members lightning tournament
Email from Pascal:
We are planning to run a one evening lightning tournament at the club on Thursday 25th September.
This lightning tournament is a kind of fast chess where the time of thinking is fixed to 10 seconds. Each move is played every ten seconds until the end of the game.
We shall set a maximum time of game to half an hour; thus allowing multiple games in the same evening.
Notice that the player must make his/her move when the buzzer sounds. Failing to do so would be considered as a loss.
There is no entry fee and the results are not sent for grading.
Registrations will open on the evening at 6.30pm. The first games will start at 6.45pm.
Depending on the number of entries, we will try to form a major group and a minor group (grade being more than 135 for the major). Depending also on the number of players per group, there may be a single round or a double round.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
We hope that you can come to this exciting event.
