    Annual General Meeting

    The Annual General Meeting and "Secretaries Meeting" were held at the Victoria Inn, Roche on Thursday 15th June. I have uploaded the AGM minutes and the Secretaries Meeting Minutes to this website.

    Decisions taken included:

  • Creation of a new league to be called the "Minor League". It will run along similar lines to the Quickplay League but will be open only to players rated below 1650. The purpose of the new league is to offer competition chess for juniors and ohers who would not be selected regularly for their clubs' teams in the existng leagues.
  • Various amendments to rating limits following the abolition of grades and the move towards ELO ratings.
  • Introduction of tie-break procedures.
  • All the rules are in a combined pdf file which are here.
