Membership Secretary’s Report

The committee have decided that, as it is our 75th anniversary, they would offer life membership at a reduced rate of £50.00 as from 1 March 2007 to 30 September 2008. If anyone who is not already a life member wishes to take advantage of this, all they need to do is to forward a cheque made payable to the Braille Chess Association (BCA) either to myself or our treasurer, Richard Kidals.

The following have allowed their membership to become lapsed: Roy Gray, Kenny Harman and Dean Hartley.

It is extremely important that members observe the following guidelines: If anyone has details of a new member wishing to join the BCA, or you have a change of address, however slight, or if you require to change the medium by which you receive information, then please do not hesitate to contact the Membership Secretary.

Obviously it is up to those playing correspondence chess to notify their opponents of any changes to their address or to their use of media.

Deceased member:

Tom Barbour (Braille), deceased 24 December 2007.

Roy Green (Braille).
