Preston AGM

Notice to everyone, that we intend to hold an AGM this year, now that we seem to be over the worst of COVID-19 and a lot of chess activities are slowly getting back to normal.

The plan is to hold the AGM sometime in July, so can I ask all members to update their membership contact details via your profile / account page.

This will allow me to send you the AGM papers directly and also elicit any comments / feedback for the AGM agenda.

Thank you.

Club Championship 2021/22

Hi Everyone,

Have been approached by some players to setup a club championship this season now that it looks like some sense of normality (for some people at least) has returned and over the board chess is taking place at the club.

Whilst there appears to be not much chance of many league chess matches this season, it makes sense that we run an accelerated club championship.

Firstly, I want to gauge opinion on how many takers we have, and your thoughts to the following questions.

Lancaster outdoor tournament

There is an outdoor chess tournament in Lancaster September 5th, closing date for entries August 29th.
