Sheffield Individual Chess Championships


Geoff Brown has sent out an e-mail to club secretaries which reads as follows.  The updated flyer mentioned is to be found here.


Hi everyone,


Those of you who were at the Fixture Meeting in September may remember that flyers were distributed for the Sheffield Individual Championships.  The closing date for entries was 15th October.  With only three entries (with a fourth coming in a few weeks later) there seemed little interest in the events, and no point in them going ahead.


However, I have recently received enquiries from a couple of people so I am prepared to have another shot at setting up the events and hence this mail to club secretaries and team captains.  There is an updated flyer attached for you to pass on to your club colleagues who may be interested.


Rather than the initially advertised 6 rounds, we will now have to settle for just five rounds - that'll be one a month in January, February, March, April and May.  I would hope that rounds can be played to this strict timetable and not over-run like several did last season.  The first deadline is for entries to be with me no later than Saturday, 30th December.  I'll send out the first round pairings by email on 31st.


Rules for the tournaments can be found at


Best wishes


Geoff Brown
