We have the following message from Maura Osborne, Chair of the Leinster Junior Chess Junior Committee.
On Sunday the 8th of February Alex Baburin will be running a novelty event – a family chess tournament. The “1 + 1” formula is simple –– one child and one adult. That adult can be a family member or a guardian. Board 1 is played by children and Board 2 by adults. The venue is the Stillorgan Park Hotel. The entry fee is €25 per team. Registration is from 14:00 to 14:45. All registrations are on the day. There will be a chess quiz (optional) from 14:45 to 15:00 and the tournament will start at 15:00. It will be over by 18:00. There will be lots of prizes.
Can you pass the word on to your club members who might be interested.
