Publicity and Recruitment

During the past few months I have been publicising our offer to assist new members with teaching and coaching and to assist with the setting up of local clubs or clubs in schools. The most significant development is the project at Dorton College for Further Education, where we have supplied chess sets and chess clocks and a coach, Guy Baker, who will make regular visits from September. We are also in the process of locating coaches who will assist several individuals who have recently joined the BCA.

Reports of the recent Stephen Eastwick-Field Memorial Tournament are now on our website and will appear in the ECF’s 'Chess Moves' and the Primary Club newsletter.

Here is my usual reminder: You can all be involved in publicity and recruitment. The more we spread the message the more we will succeed.
