Bringing Chess to Visually Impaired People

The Gazette - August 2005

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.


A few weeks ago, one of our members suggested that email addresses should be included in the BCA membership list. The suggestion was discussed at the AGM and more recently at a BCA Committee meeting.

The outcome of the discussions is that a separate list of email addresses will be produced, rather than including them in the main list. Julie Leonard has generously agreed to produce and maintain the list for us. Any BCA member can have a copy of this list but it will only be available in electronic format.

Julie already has quite a number of your email addresses because of her responsibility for sending out the BCA Gazette by email. She will write to everyone on this Gazette list to check whether the members concerned are content for their email addresses to be included in the new list that will be made generally available within the BCA.

In addition, if you have an email address and are not on the Gazette list, you are invited to get in touch with Julie in order to be included on the new list.

Initially, the new list will be updated and emailed out on a quarterly basis but this will be reviewed in the light of experience.
