Summer of Fun

Florence and the Machine takes the Pyramid Stage tonight.

Florence and the Machine takes to the Pyramid Stage tonight

The summer time is generally a quiet time for most chess clubs.

Most normal people are out enjoying the sun, on Holiday or head to a music festival.

Some clubs such as Oxford City close down between April and September however here at Cumnor we don’t stop, well except for August!

To keep us on our toes we have two internal tournaments are now in full swing. In the Players’ Cup it is tight, only half a point separate 2nd and 5th. Gareth currently sits at the top of the pile after his draw against Zoe however the rest of us are waiting to take advantage if / when he slips up.

In the Bill Laar Trophy, a lead pack has started to pull away Steve, Graham, Robin, David and Leo have created a little gap between themselves and the rest of the players. Steve has a tentative lead on the rest but again a single small slip could be fatal.

Next week three games have already been arranged, Zoe and Liam, Robin and Richard and Steve and Robert (colours to be decided on the night). With that line up it looks to be an exciting evening, a line-up to rival Glastonbury!

To see more information on our tournaments have a look here.
