For anyone interested, the Dublin Community Games chess competition takes place this weekend from 5-7pm on Saturday in the Parish Community Centre, Malahide.
A reminder to all that the second round of our 2019 Blitz Grand Prix is this Wednesday, at the usual time of 8ish.
The Armstrong and the BEA A both recorded big wins in the last week, while the Bodley South suffered a quick reverse against Dún Laoghaire – not helped by the fact that half their team got called up to the BEA at short notice!
The Irish Juniors are being held in the Talbot Hotel in Stillorgan this year; entry has recently opened on the ICU website. This is a great tournament for experienced players and beginners alike and well worth considering!
The team blitz tournament was hugely popular last year, and it’s back on the calendar this year; it’s on 3rd March in the Talbot after the junior coaching session. We’ll enter a team in this again if there’s interest, with rating deciding places if there’s more than 4 interested. If you are interested, just post here or ask up the club.
It’s been a busy week since our last update, with all bar one of our eight league teams in action.
