New Rapidplay competition

13 January 2021

Message from Paul May:
Hi all!
Alwoodley will be running a rapidplay competition via Lichess – 25 mins per player, and each player plays their opponent twice on an evening. The idea would be that this is an ongoing swiss and would happen every two weeks for 6 rounds starting this Wednesday 7pm – with white to challenge black.

Please let either John Hipshon or myself know if you wish to take part before Monday.

Although the competition is run under the Alwoodley banner, all Limewood members are eligible and welcome to take part.   (If your eligibility is challenged,  the magic expression is ‘Civis Limesilvus Sum’ or simply ‘I’m from Limewood’.)

The first round starts at 7 pm on Wednesday 20 January 2021 on the Lichess platform.

Tonight’s clubnight
Tonight’s online joint clubnight with Alwoodley was well attended with over 20 players taking part.  It took the form of a 6-round Swiss and as usual was a thoroughly enjoyable and good-natured evening.  You can see how the games went and play through any of them  at:

Forthcoming attraction
