has invited you to join the exeterchessclub group!
I wish to form a mailing list to allow members of
Exeter Chess club, and local chess organisers to
stay in touch more effectively by email.
If it works it should make it easier to announce
local chess events, without each captain, or
organisers, having to maintain a separate list of
email addresses for Exeter members.
I also trust that we can have a small amount of
discussion about the Exeter Chess club website, and
the future and history of Chess in Devon, and other
topics of interest, without creating too much noise
for people just here for the announcements.
Please sign-up and see if we can make this work.
I'm initially inviting members, captains of Devon
teams that I know of, and one or two others, but
please feel free to extend the invitation to anyone
who has an interest in the local chess scene.
