The source of the fixtures listed in the left hand column is the final list published by the League Secretary on 30th June. It should be regarded as provisional until the season gets under way as the dates and/or venues of some fixtures may be changed if so agreed by the clubs concerned.

Club Championship

This will be a Swiss system tournament open to all registered players in the county. Standard play rate, 5 rounds during the season, details to be announced at the end of August. Games will be graded.

Venue

Carnon Downs Village Hall is easy to find. It’s in the village: turn off the main A39 Truro to Falmouth road. The main village road is Forth Coth and Tregye Road is a turning off that. The Hall is just at the turning. Our room is the Meeting Room, on the right inside the front door. Facilities are good. There’s a free car park, and a bus stop within 50 metres (route U1 and others).
