A few teams have requested games for Thursdays v Brentwood. Just to remind that Brentwood now play on a Tuesday (and have done so since January). Also, please do not request NECL knockout cup weeks for our A and B team.
Brentwood have dropped the D Team for 2012-13 season.
After the loss of several members for various reasons it was decided to trim down and reconcile the number of teams. Hopefully the new venue should bring stability to what has been a highly disruptive couple of years and along with it more new members to replace those who have moved on.
As of 01/09/2012 Brentwood Chess Club has moved from the Rising Sun to:
Brentwood Baptist Church, Kings Road, Brentwood, Essex. CM14 4DR. Entrance is on Kings Chase and we play upstairs, we can accommodate people who need disabled access but need advanced warning (please contact relevant captain) as there is no lift so we can make arrangements.
We still play on Tuesdays at 7.30pm.
BCC Club Championship after 5 rounds ended in a tie for first Trevor Coote and Gavin Strachan on 41/2 / 5. Although it appeared like Trevor was going to lose after Gavin won his final round very quickly, at just gone 11 Malcolm Kingsley blundered and fell into a very clever mating net. Trevor and Gavin have to now play two 15 min games and if these are drawn then one Armageddon match (White has to win but gets more time) to decide the champion.
