Membership Secretary’s Report

We have three new five year members joining the BCA this quarter. David Levens, a chess coach from Alfreton has joined as an associate member. He is interested in the BCA and wishes to support the work of our organisation. Jacopo Tinti from Novara Italy and Niall Fitzpatrick from Boher, Co. Limerick, Ireland have joined as five year visually impaired members. I have already had the pleasure of playing chess with Jacopo in an online Skype tournament. He has also signed up to play in the remote British Championship and Chairman’s Cup in August.

Change of name: Congratulations are due to Sarah Kenealy and Daniel Scarrott who have recently married. Sarah now becomes Sarah Scarrott.

Deceased: Very sadly since my last report three active and very popular members have passed away. These being Arthur Greatrex, Stan Lightowler and Antoine Reeves. They will be greatly missed.

Mark Hague.
