OVER THE BOARD EVENTS
There is nothing our members like more than playing chess face-to-face. We normally run three over the board (OTB) events every year. A five round tournament in the spring played over a weekend, a seven round tournament in the Summer played over a full week and a second five round tournament in the autumn played over a weekend.
The summer event alternates between the British Championship and the Chairman's Cup. The latter event is limited to players with a rating below 1750. As with our theme-break, the summer event includes a program of entertainments and other activities for those who either need a break from the chess or just come along for the holiday. Entertainments often take the form of quizzes, informal concerts, games other than chess, and in recent years a murder mystery. One evening is reserved for the “Soirée” where members show off their own talents.
During the COVID 19 pandemic it was impossible to put on over-the-board events. You can read about the remote events which replaced our normal program by following the previous link.
