Club AGM Monday3rd June 7:30pm

Yep, that time of year again. This one is rather more important than usual though.

We have several vital issues to discuss on Monday, mostly related to membership fees and club funding in general, so we really need and would appreciate a good turnout to hear the views of as many (or all!) members as possible.

These matters are not decided by a committee or a few people ‘at the top’ – they’re decided by the members at meetings like these. It’s your club and it should run the way you want it.

Aside from these matters, it’s also a chance to have your say on anything else that’s important to you. What you like about the club, what you think could be improved, anything you’d like to see that’s not on offer just now. Nothing about the club is set in stone if the members would rather have something different. We want the club to be what you want it to be, but we need to know what that is.

Please come along if you can. Monday June 3rd 7.30

There are some very important events for the Club taking place over the next few weeks.

  1. The Club Championship round 4 still has 5 games to finish on the 13th Then the final round to be played next week on the 20th May.

  1. The TAFCA AGM is this Thursday, 16th May and it would be nice to have a good turnout from the Club. The Club has 6 votes. There is one very important issue which must be discussed as this affects all clubs. Stonehaven Chess Club has asked to enter a team in the League next year. This will mean clubs from Dundee will have to travel there. Clubs outside Dundee (Perth, Kirkcaldy, and St Andrews) would probably play their games in Dundee at either Castlehill or Dundee Chess Clubs. This will all have to be decided on the night.

  1. Our own Club AGM will take place on Monday, 3rd We are looking for a good turnout as one item on the agenda to be discussed is an increase in fees which will affect all members. So please come along and have your say.

One of our Junior members, Cory Stewart took part in the UK School’s Chess Challenge Gigafinal under 12s at the weekend in Edinburgh. Cory and another school friend entered through his School.

Both made it through the Megafinal back in March.  Cory achieved a respectable score of 3.5 out of 7.  There were 51 entrants in the tournament with a number of high graded players and Cory played one opponent with an 1866 grading showing the strength of this tournament. So well done to Cory for winning 3.5 out of 7 games.
