Upcoming events in September


• Wednesday nights at the Cranes have been a great success and will be continuing for the foreseeable future 🎉

• The next event in Geoff Brown's outdoor Kelham Island rapidplay series takes place this Sunday 19th. Usually involves 3-5 games of 15-minute chess with a 5-second increment. Entry is free by email to Geoff (ask me if you don't have it)


• A new season of the Sheffield online league starts soon. Matches are played on lichess every second Thursday at 7.30pm, starting on 30th September. We need more players before the Saturday deadline, so let me know if you would like to participate.
