With the way the world is at the moment we will have to get used to finding a new “normal”. We have been in contact with our friends over in Cowley and we are very happy to announce that we are going to play at 3.30 pm on THIS Sunday, (SUNDAY 19th APRIL) a friendly match between the two clubs.
We have 8 players and the time limit will be 45 minutes + 15 second increment, and it will take place on www.lichess.org. This is exactly the same as the 4NCL have been doing so we’ll follow their instructions – see http://www.4ncl.co.uk/data/Guide_to_Playing_Games_on_Lichess.pdf.
The pairings will be released sometime tomorrow. Cowley did win the toss and will be White on odd numbered boards.
If this works we will see if they are up for a rematch, or see if somebody else fancies taking on the might of Cumnor!
In other news club nights are still being run online at Lichess every Thursday going forward, we are running a little tournament to see who finishes top of the leader board every week. The current scores on the doors are:
Gareth and Jon D’Souza-Eva 3
Ian, Robin and Nigel 2
Liam and Mark Sayers 1
Stay safe everyone!
