Re: London Chess Classic 2023

Malcolm Pein and his team did indeed do a great job organising and putting on and introducing the London Chess Classic and its related Open at Olympia over a number of years. Indeed he also put on a number of graded events during the periods these other events were running and also daily Blitz event...

Re: Juniors with autism and ADHD

Richard I would be happy to hear any ideas you may have about setting up some training sessions in a SEN school or in one or more chess clubs, and in whether or not you would be available to give any training for the ECF.

Re: Juniors with autism and ADHD

Roger I am glad to see this issue has been raised. As you may know I am the Newly Appointed ECF Manager for Chess Accessibility and one of the areas I am interested in is finding out how many clubs have players who have impairments, and one of the less obvious ones is SEN/ADHD/possible autism. Pleas...

Re: Martin Cath

Very sorry to hear about Martin’s passing-he was a true gentleman and did a great deal for the Surrey chess scene. He was also a very keen player and I saw him on numerous occasions hold or win tricky endgames-which I believe was his forte. He will be greatly missed by SCCA Members and in particular...

Re: ÉU Seniors Chmps in Assisi

Quite confused by the regularity of venues used within Italy 🇮🇹. No offence meant to John or Stephen-indeed John has won the event on Tiebreak-abd Terry despite a great effort had just missed a medal on tiebreak having finished first equal on pts 7/9-a fabulous effort by him. Abd a gréât World ÉCU d...

Re: Brian Eley

Well I agree that any victims deserve to get some further chance of `closure', but also I think we owe it to the victims to try and find out just how many complaints were made and what exactly was done about them-and a look through records and some interviews might help to achieve that. Whoever migh...

Re: FM Mike Franklin (02-ii-1931 25-iv-2023)

I was saddened to hear of Michael's death -although he had made it to a good age-he was an integral part of my Surrey Open team that won the National County Title for the first time in 54 years-and I recall that although he was a very humble chap he nevertheless amused myself and others in our drive...
