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

Olympiad 2016

November 26th, 2015

The 42nd World Chess Olympiad 2016 is due to take place in Baku, Azerbaijan from 17 September 2016 until 30 September 2016 and Chess Scotland will be looking to field teams in the Open and Women’s events as is usual.

In order to make travel and other arrangements as early as possible, would interested parties please contact me as soon as possible. I would hope to have teams selected by the end of January 2016.

I realise this is very early, but those not selected also need time to reply to alternative tournament organisers, as well as for the reasons mentioned above.

Interested parties include prospective players, team captains, potential selectors, potential sponsors at any level, those with knowledge of travelling to Azerbaijan and anyone who might be interested in coaching prior to the events.

Kind regards,
Andy Burnett (CS International Director)
