CS Director Information - January 2004

Chess Scotland is delighted to announce some changes to directors' roles. Craig Pritchett is now in place as Schools Development Director to develop Chess Scotland's programme for schools. Craig has recently returned with his family to Scotland after working in England for many years and has the distinction of being the first ever Scottish born International Master. A review of Chess Scotland's competitions and services for schools will be conducted over the next few months, including a discussion with school organisers at a meeting likely to be in March. Details will be sent to the main regional school organisers during January, following up a meeting last March. If you would like to receive an invitation please e-mail

George Anderson has become Membership Services Director, taking over most functions from Sam Collins. Sam Collins remains Publications Director and Editor of Scottish Chess. Sam and George worked closely on ensuring that there was a smooth handover.

This note sets out the main areas of work George and Sam will each do. This will be particularly helpful to organisers in knowing whom to contact.

George Anderson will process all membership applications and renewals, whether for individuals, clubs or schools. BUT individuals who want to pay by credit card can still do so through Chess Suppliers either at their premises at 15 Hope Street, Glasgow, or at congress bookstalls they run or by phone to 0141 221 6464.

Scottish Chess magazine will continue to be edited by Sam Collins and will be despatched by him. Consequently organisers wanting to issue leaflets, entry forms etc should still liase with Sam to arrange this.

The calendar of events is not being printed this year but is available on the Chess Scotland website. Organisers should tell Sam Collins of any events which need to be updated, corrected or added. [Note: Douglas Bryson does not deal this with since Sam Collins manages this area of the site.]

Congress organisers should also continue to arrange the use of equipment with Sam Collins.

Congress registration forms should be sent to George Anderson. Details of the insurance cover available are included on the registration forms, with further information being available from Mac McKenzie.

E-mail and postal enquiries about membership should be sent to George Anderson. Telephone enquiries about membership and general enquiries should still go to Sam Collins on 0141 221 6464.

Here is a list of all the Chess Scotland directors' roles and responsibilities.
