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 Captain – A Statement by the Management Board

April 15th, 2014

The Chess Scotland Management Board note the recent noticeboard comments about the forthcoming Olympiad. While we welcome the use of the noticeboard as a vehicle for debate it is the members through their elected directors and appointed officials who determine and implement policy.

We note the comments by some team members in relation to team captaincy but they do not provide sufficient grounds for any change to the decisions constitutionally taken by the relevant elected director.

Selection policy will be reviewed by the Constitutional Working Party which will report to a future EGM. All CS elected directors and officials are accountable for their decisions and can be questioned at the Annual General Meeting of Chess Scotland.

CS wish the Olympiad teams every success in Norway
