Bringing Chess to Visually Impaired People

The Gazette - November 2001

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


Surprise, surprise: when your issue of the November Gazette lands on your doorstep in October, you may well exclaim with Hamlet: "The time is out of joint." yet all this is due to the accelerated work schedule at our friends in the Braille production unit of the RNIB.

In this magazine your secretary gives a call to arms delivered straight from the shoulder; there is some rather gloomy writing from the tournament director; a lively account of the recent British Championship, and plenty to think about for next year in UK, Ireland and Holland.

Readers will notice that this edition of the Gazette is rather slim, so if you want more of interest for the February publication please let me have your contributions by January 10th.

Meanwhile, on behalf of your committee members I send you an early but sincere good wish for a Merry Christmas and all that is good in the coming year.

Peter Price.
