The club has reached a stage now where we would like to introduce more coaching and tournaments.
Our reason for not doing so is because we have so few adults who can commit to attending/coaching on a regular basis.
The committee have discussed this and have agreed, in principle, that if we can form a group of adults who can fill these criteria we could then announce our intentions in the paper and hopefully invite more members.
We have the only registered club in the North of Scotland, we have an excellent venue, more than enough equipment, we also host the largest junior tournament in the North, there is no reason we cannot be a more successful club, enter the Scottish National Chess League, and host weekly tournaments within the club, we only need more adults!.
I must take this opportunity to thank the adults who already turn up as often as they can, in some cases every week, to open up the club and generally ensure we are always open, they also coach new members and run the very successful monthly Blitz tournament.
I hope we will be in a position to announce new tournaments/coaching etc.; we just need to pass on the word we are looking for support to carry out the clubs ambitions and promote chess in the Highlands.
