Team News

Strategic alliance

The Calstock and Lerryn Chess Clubs have continued and enhanced their strategic alliance with automatic overlapping membership and club nights arranged for successive days (Lerryn on Wednesdays, Calstock on Thursdays). This is a single step away from formal amalgamation and each club will continue functioning under the names 'Calstock' amd 'Lerryn' and will nurture as far as possible a core of 'local' players for matches at both venues. The purpose of this arrangement, which has the blessing of the Cornwall Chess Association, is to protect the survival and development of small village clubs and lessen the chance of league defaults. Lerryn might otherwise have been vulnerable following the departure to Brittany of Barry Childs.
