Bringing Chess to Visually Impaired People

The Gazette - July 1998

The views expressed in the Gazette do not necessarily reflect the policies or views of the BCA, nor those of the editor.


Following the AGM which took place on Saturday 7th March we welcome two new officers to the committee: Charli Goddard as Treasurer and Shirley Watkins as Cassette Librarian. Their addresses appear at the front of this issue. The following recommendation from the committee was approved: as from 1st October 1998 bookings accepted by the organiser of any BCA event after the published closing date for entries will be subject to a £4 penalty. This applies to all players and non players and includes those who are under the age of 21.

Taped copies of the minutes of the AGM are available to any member from our cassette librarian.

Our good wishes go with Chris Ross and Graham Lilley who will be representing the UK at the World Individual Championship in the Czech Republic from 3rd to 13th July.

Stan Lovell.
