Yorkshire Chess Association



About this Website





This website was launched in September 2017, as a YCA Year Book website, originally having been intended to


>  make available, on line, Year Book content,

    with some additional related material,

>  show mid‑season corrections and changes to club‑related information,


to which purposes were later added


>  showing mid-season changes and additions to the Event Calendar,

>  showing Event Results/Reports not covered by other sites, (see Home page) and

>  making generally available such Notices as may be contributed (see Home page).


The last three items were added in response to suggestions, ideas and wishes expressed by Yorkshire chess organisers from around the county.  Making a success of these added objectives inevitably depends on “proactive” journalistic endeavour on my part (something which can wane over time), but openness to external contributions is part of the underlying raison d’etre.


At the YCA AGM on 16/06/2018, in view of the discontinuing of the yorkhirechess.org website, which had hitherto been regarded as the “YCA website”, this website was adopted as the “YCA website”, though it remains independently owned and run.  The aim is to fulfil such requirements the YCA might have of such a website.
