There’s a new venue for the final round of the leagues this year.
All posts for the month March, 2016
Many thanks to the various Armstrong players for the coaching sessions last night. And a reminder that your next chance to put your new skills in action is next weekend, at the 2016 Irish Junior Championships, hosted by St Benildus. We’re on course for a record entry – so don’t forget to enter! There’s a late entry surcharge on all entries received after next Wednesday.
A reminder about this evening’s coaching session up the club – and don’t forget to bring one of your games to go through with our coaches as well!
Ross Beatty had his best tournament ever in Cork at the weekend, finishing joint second in the over-1600 section, level with Sam Collins IM – the only person to beat him – and clocking up a 2100+ rating performance.
Following on from Mel Ó Cinnéide’s talk last month, next Wednesday will see a couple of the club’s top Armstrong players up the club for a junior coaching session.
Conor O’Donnell – already the first player in our records to have retained the Charity Blitz – made it an unprecedented three-in-a-row last night, holding off the challenge of Stephen Brady both in the groups and again in the final, while over €1,600 was raised for the Simon Community and the Samaritans.
A reminder that the club’s annual charity blitz is tomorrow! Registration (and set-up!) will be open from 7:15, with the aim to get underway by 8pm.
Tournament details as before.
The BEA fell foul of the curse which has hit each of the sides who’ve occupied the second promotion spot since Christmas – and have hopefully passed the hot potato on just in time!
In which I narrowly missed out on a grading prize at the Irish Rapid, Dylan and Mihailo drew and a couple of Cooneys made their competitive bow out in the ALSAA.
The O’Hanlon put some distance between themselves and the drop zone when following up their recent 4-2 win over Elm Mount with an excellent 3-3 draw in Gorey.
