Chess at Sidcup remains outstanding value at £50 for 50 three-hour meetings. Even better, pensioners get a £5 discount and anyone whose yearly income is under £12,000 pays only £30. And the most outstanding value is for juniors under 18, who pay nothing at all. Joiners during the year pay pro-rata. This is even better value than the cups of tea or coffee available at 20p per cup.
In the Kent League we have five teams of various average strengths: three six-board and two four board teams. Results can be found on the League Management System website (ecflms.org.uk and choose Kent League in the menu and then Sidcup).
Like last year the club will run its knock-out tournament for all members bar the stronger (“over 120 grade”) players and an all-play-all handicap tournament where the handicap is that the stronger player has less time to make all the moves than the weaker player. Perhaps you will plat a game worth showing on the website. If you have items for the website, continue to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
