NEWTON ABBOT

27/08/2008

Following successful seasons, both internally and in the Torbay Chess League, the club has now decided to meet on a weekly basis on Thursday evenings commencing at 7pm at The Courtenay Centre, Kingsteignton Road, Newton Abbot.

Chess players of all ages are very welcome to attend and the club has had a great deal of success in promoting chess with junior members. Two 15 year olds have played for England in their respective age groups, and an 11 year old has gone a long way in getting into his age group England squad.

The club, however, are happy to see players of all strengths and the internal competitions are geared with this in mind.

During the summer months the club will be meeting on June 26th and July 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th and will then have a short break until the season recommences in September.

The Officers of the Club from whom further information can be obtained are:

President: Wyllie Hume, 3 Cistern Street Totnes TQ9 5SP (01803 865784)

Secretary: Trefor Thynne, 54 Silverwood Ave, Milber, Newton Abbot TQ12 4LG (01626 204496)
