Summer Programme 2021

As in previous years, over the summer we are meeting fortnightly (for the most part). Meeting dates are given below. As we don't have enough available weeks to run our internal club championship, this summer we'll be returning to the old pattern of one off events. Other than the evening designated for the AGM, we're planning to run a series of 15-minute tournaments. Anyone pair of players who would like to arrange to play a longer format game are of course welcome to do so, though they will need to be prepared to cope with a little disturbance from those involved in the shorter games.
