New Members and Visitors Mark the first week after Easter

April 15th, 2013

With pleasure we see that the Intermediate Group was almost complete present on 11 April, the first meeting after the Easter break: Ian, Maxwell, Jonathan, Franz, Jay and Sophie. With Mees hopefully joining from next time this group is ready to start the Intermediate Club competition, playing 1 game each week until end of season in June.

The Beginners Group from 1.30pm on Saturday 13 April was also well populated with Kaiden, Julien and Mikael present. James and Kian were there too trying the Saturday out and glad also that Gauri was there for the first time as a member now after having taken a few small-group lessons on Saturday morning. We hope to see Etienne, Mohamed and Ting Ting back soon as also for the Beginners Group we will start a competition. Finally, it was great to see three new girls visiting and trying some chess out. We would be heading towards a majority of girls in this group which would be a rather unique situation.

The Advanced Group from 3.30pm started their first round of the competition already. The games could not be finished in time and are adjourned to next week when we will get the results: Bryant vs. Mei Jing and Wilson vs. Chor Wei. Miguel Angel had a bye and hopefully we will see Gerent next week and also Ruaidhri when his schedule allows.

On Saturday there is now availability for 2 participants in the 11-11.45am small-group class and for 1 participant in the 12-12.45pm class.
