Sensory Board Donation

Chess Scotland is starting a fundraising exercise to buy some new sensory boards for use in tournaments. All sections, from Minor to Open, will get the use of these boards. Discussion on the topic can be found here.


The SJCAET Educational Trust supports young Scottish players, and is a tax-efficient medium for donations to aid the development of Junior Chess. For more details please visit

Chess Scotland Club Membership, Richardson and Spens

September 27th, 2016

At the start of the month, an email was sent out to all Club Secretaries. I have since had a few emails from people who were secretaries at their clubs and have since moved on. Subsequently there are a few clubs who have not received the form.

Contained in the form is also the entry form for the Richardson, Spens and Nancy Elder tournaments, deadline for entry is 7th October.

The form can be downloaded from Here

Please can I ask all clubs to let me know if there is a change in Secretary so I can keep the club list up to date
