On Tuesday evening we continue with Social chess night at the club which has been well supported so far with 8-10 players coming along to play/review tactics . Tony has been bringing along end game techniques which are useful for us lesser mortals. Please come along if you can and as always are all welcome at the club.

Xmas Party at the Elstead Hotel – 12/12/19 – 4 course Xmas dinner – £24.95.

This year  we are opening up the evening to wives and partners and any special guests you would like to invite. There is no deposit required this year as our credit has been established with the hotel but we would ask you to make payment and place your order by mid November.

I will be at the club this week or text me/e mail and let me know if you are coming (hope so) so we will have an idea of numbers.

Happy chessing Poole.
