11/11/20 Mark Murrell writes – “The Southern Counties Chess Union has launched an 8 board team event on Lichess.org for its County and Non-County member organisations, covering a catchment area for chess players interested in slower chess online (G60/15) from the Isle of Wight to the Chilterns and eastwards through London to the Essex, Kent and Sussex coasts. Controller Mark Murrell continues to utilise alternative formats in county chess, with two average team rated sections (2050 and 1675) intended to include a wide as possible range of playing abilities, with multiple teams permitted in each section. The competition will be played over 5 rounds either side of the British Online Chess Championships in the traditional county slot of 2.00pm on Saturdays 28th November, 5th December and 9th,16th & 23rd January.
Details can be found on the SCCU website including details of who to contact if you are interested in playing in the event. Information, pairings and results are also hosted in the SCCU ECF LMS. Look out for updates next week. Team entries close at midnight on Saturday 21 November.”
I am happy to coordinate interest from Herts players.
