  SNCL Round 9 and AGM followed by Team Lightning
Posted by: Glynis Grant - 15-04-2024, 10:04 PM - Forum: General Chess Chat - No Replies

Sunday 21st, yes this Sunday is last round of SNCL for this season. PLEASE remember to bring all trophies and the Giant Killer shield.

Any matters for the AGM must be lodged with me before the last round begins. At present we will be discussing Fees for next year, format of the event and dates for next season.
Personally I am happy with the nine round FIDE event but the extra day and increase in Scottish grading fees plus expense of FIDE grading fees means I have to ask for a rise in team entry fee. It has stood at £100 for many years now but we are now seriously eating into our funds. Where else can your club get forty five games at just over two pounds a game?  

Look forward to seeing you all -- dogs (Millie, Murphy and Bailey) will be at their Auntie's but may be persuaded to make an appearance in the afternoon

Just a quick note as I have no more details other than I have received a call from a friend of Martin's telling me he had passed away.
He had been at Cathcart for the last couple of seasons but had been previously been around the Lanarkshire Chess scene for quite a number of years and I am told he also played at Uddingston Grammar school.
If I find out anything else I will post later.
