SEAN POPE ADVISES A CHANGE OF VENUE:

Hello members and friends of Exeter Chess Club

I am emailing to notify you that Exeter Chess Club will be moving to a new venue.

The new venue is the David Jeffrey Room, Heavitree Social Club, 2 East Wonford Hill, Heavitree, EX1 3BS.  Our first evening there is 7 pm Tuesday 3 August 2010.

The venue is the big white building with the Heavitree United blackboard notice outside.  It is across the road from where indicated on the attached map.

The good news is that membership of the social club is only £15 (£8 concessionary) a year and there is a ground floor bar.  There is plenty of parking and the venue is on the main Heavitree bus route.  Please be careful crossing the road as there is no pavement directly outside. 

The club room is quiet and although a fraction smaller and with less storage space the committee is happy with this new venue.

Social club membership forms will be available tomorrow at the last meeting at our old venue or alternatively you may join on the first evening that you attend the new venue.

Sorry for the short notice.  I am sure you will join me in thanking Steve Crane of Clifton Games for providing an excellent venue for the last six years.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Dear member or friend of Exeter Chess Club

I hope you had a good summer apart from the weather. I am writing to remind you of the forthcoming events at the start of the new chess season.

The Annual General Meeting is on Tuesday 30.09.08 at 7.15 pm. The membership fee and all being well a new constitution need voting on together with the other usual matters. This is your chance to comment on the running of the club and to make suggestions how it may be improved. Please see the attached agenda and AGM minutes.

The dates of the other traditional events and one new event are listed below.

07.10.08 (subject to confirmation): Simultaneous match by Graham Bolt club champion.

28.10.08: Rex Willis Memorial Gambit tournament.

16.12.08: Douglas Phillips Memorial buzzer tournament

06.01.09: Blitz tournament organised by Ish Ramdewar, open to non- members.

Ray Shepherd (Tournament secretary) is organising the 2008-09 combined club championship and general (minor) tournament. Entries will be taken up to 07.10.08 although he will take late entries in the usual way.

Exeter enjoyed great success in the Devon County Chess Association competitions this year winning the Bremridge cup (Div.1), the Moyle cup (Div.4) and the Peter Rooke Memorial knockout cup. Congratulations to all of the captains and players involved. Please can members let me know if they wish to play or even act as a captain in the Devon competitions on occasional Saturday afternoons or in the Exeter & District league competitions on Tuesday evenings.

The committee is always looking at ways to boost membership. If you know of any potential new members please encourage them to come along on Tuesday evenings. The first couple of evenings are free.

If you are on the internet why not look at the following chess websites some of which may already be familiar.

exeterchessclub.org.uk for Dr Dave Regis’ excellent chess coaching materials and much else.

yahoo.com join the Yahoo group exeterchessclub which is a very useful message board for Exeter chess club and other chess related news. I wouldn’t download the annoying yahoo toolbar though.

chessdevon.co.uk for all the local chess news.

redhotpawn.com a chess site I assure you. You can play a sort of electronic correspondence chess or unrated blitz chess

chesstempo.com for fun tactical chess puzzles

EXETER BLITZ TOURNAMENT

 

ISHAN RAMDEWAR REPORTS:-

Despite a few hiccups (a mix-up with a late entry in round 3), the
blitz event went quite well overall. We had 19 entrants (one of those
being Tom Stephenson- a very awkward customer!), £50 in prizes and I hope that everyone enjoyed it.

I'd like to apologise to Brian Aldwin who should have recieved half of
the grading prize for the U-90 section. This was due to Gareth being
awarded an extra one-point bye by accident. The prizes are being
sorted out, so fear not!

I have corrected the results and the cross-table is below.
congratulations to our overall winners, Andy Boyne and Dave Regis who each scored 9/10 and won a hefty prize of £6.25 each! Also
congratulations to Jonathan Waley who, with a grade of just 90 managedto win the U150 prize with 7/10, to Bob Jones who won the U120 prizewith 6/10 and to our joint winners of the U90 prize: Gareth Ward and Brian Aldwin.

Simon Waters has written to all members as follows:

3rd January 2009

Hi All,

Ish is organising a Blitz Tournament this Tuesday, just forwarding his
message, and hope to see you at Clifton Road games at 19:20.

 Simon

On the first Tuesday of 2009 (6th of January), Exeter Chess Club will
be hosting a 10 round open blitz tournament.

The time control is 5 minutes each for the entire game. It is my
experience that this is a very popular time control, so I thought I'd
give the people what they want and organise a tournament!

Everyone is welcome to enter, regardless of strength or whether they
are Exeter members. As such, there will be graded prizes so that
everyone has a chance of winning a prize. The tournament is open, so in
theory a player graded 100 could win, for instance, the U150 prize.

The graded prizes will be given as follows (25% to each): (Open), U150,
U120, U90. ECF rapidplay grades will be used if available. If a player
has no rapidplay grade, their "Old Style" ECF grade will be used.
Otherwise, we will use take an estimated grade. No player may win more
than one prize.

Entry is £3 for non-members of Exeter, and £2.50 for members. 100% of
the money taken will be distributed as prizes!

Hope to see you there! Could you please forward this to anyone who you
think would be interested in playing, particularly at other Devon clubs.

Ish
 



Ray Shepherd writes:-

Results for the 2007/8 Club Championship and General competitions were as follows:-

Championship :- Winner Graham Bolt with 5 ½ / 6

General :- Winner Dan Frean 4 ½ / 6

The competitions went well and I had to do very little reminding to get folk to finish their games. A very commendable result from Dan , who for a time threatened to catch up with Graham!

The email system is working well and I will be continuing it this year so please provide your latest email address on the entry form if you have one. Entries will be taken for the 2008/9 competitions up to 7th October , although I will take late entries in the usual way. If you wish to be assured of being included in the first round draw though please put your entry details on the sheet on the notice board as soon as possible. Of course , that depends on whether you wish me to control the competitions again this year!
