On Saturday the 13th of June Hebden Bridge Chess Club will be running this 5-round junior event again as a follow up to the UK Chess Challenge that was held in spring this year. It will take place at the Trades Club, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge, in the upstairs concert room. Entry is open to all Calderdale youngsters, but it is especially intended for those who took part in the UK Chess Challenge. There will be small cash prizes for the three players with the highest scores overall, and a number of ‘grading prizes’, so that everyone has a chance of winning something.
Entry fee will be £1, payable on the day. We will, however, need to know who is entering, so that we can take the draw for the first round ahead of the event. Either fill in the form below, or pass the same information to John Kerrane by phone on 01422 842 426.
All games will be played using a chess clock at a limit of 15 minutes per player. The event will consist of 5 rounds, and we hope to be finished by 12.00 noon, or soon after. We advise entrants to bring a drink and a snack.
