Team News

Strategic alliance

The Calstock and Lerryn Chess Clubs are continuing their strategic alliance with overlapping membership. This arrangement was endorsed by the Cornwall Chess Association to assist village clubs in meeting their league obligations. This year there has been a switch of club nights, with Calstock meeting on Wednesdays and Lerryn on Thursdays, a change that effects the scheduling of league matches.

County Shield team

Following the closure of the Penwith club, we have entered a team in the County Shield under the provisional name "Calstock and East Cornwall". It will field players from outside the club and play its matches on Tuesdays at a venue (not the Boot) and with a captain to be arranged.

Club News

The club was mid-placed in the Roberts Cup last season, but did less well in the 500 league, although the differences were narrow.

We have lost David Twine to Plymouth although he has assisted in our training program and may still make the occasional game for us. Several new members have joined the club and the level of enthusiasm is high both for league participation and friendly games on club night.
