Thank you SO much for generously sponsoring Joe's Sport Relief Chessathon. We weren't sure how it would go or who turn up on the day but luckily Joe had a steady trickle of opponents to take him past the 4 hour mark, ranging from adult club players to those who just knew the basic moves. Attached is a visual report of the day for your interest.
Thanks to your kind support, Joe has managed to raise enough money to buy over 120 mosquito nets. As you can imagine, he is a very chuffed and rather exhausted boy. Time for an Easter egg!
The completely revised, corrected and expanded "A History of Lancashire Chess from 1871 to 2011" by Mike Conroy is now available and selling fast.
This 500+ page bound hardback book with fly cover and colour photographs is ready for immediate dispatch. This edition has had many corrections and additions compared to the softback original. It contains many pictures and games of current players across Lancashire but there have been 150 copies produced only and so it is a collector’s special.
The price of the book is only £25. However current LCA members can pick up an absolute bargain at just £15!
Postage for the book will be £5.30 as a standard parcel or £8.30 First Class in the UK. However if we can arrange to meet somewhere convenient within Lancashire to hand over your copy then the postage cost will reduce to zero.
To order your copy simply get in touch via our Contact Us form.
Lancashire Chess Association has available a Junior Players Course.
The aim of this course is to take new players to chess, teach them the basics of the game, and then show them techniques and strategies to bring them up to a standard where they can hold their own in a competitive game, whether it be league or congress.
The course manual is ideal for anybody running a junior chess club. To obtain a free copy, please get in touch through our Contact Us page.
