22 June 2016
Clubnight on 22 June was arguably our most successful to date. Despite the rival attractions of cricket, Euro 2016, Glastonbury, holidays and a fine summer solstice evening outdoors, 7 of us turned up for an evening of 20-minutes-a-side games.
We were also able to welcome new member John Light. Having played in numerous chess congresses over the years – and with his experience as a Union shop steward negotiator – he is not overawed when facing a far higher-graded opponent across the table. He is a doughty fighter.
Our photo shows him as a prizewinner at a Brighouse Quickplay Congress.
Welcome to the club, John!
