you for everyone who attended the first round of the new Jamboree
competition. I hope you enjoyed it and had some good games.
2 is being held on the 1st of December at 7:30pm and will be held at the
same venue: The Bombardier’s Club (formally the Rhino) in Woodlands.
This is both for the size of the room and to allow those from
Barnsley or afar to have less distance to travel. As usual, there is
no charge for the tournament, but it is expected that we will give our
custom to the bar and not bring our own food and drink.
note that you did not have to have attended round 1 to be able to attend
later rounds. Players can play in as many or as few rounds as they’d
like, without any expectation. You also do not have to represent a
Doncaster-based team. Other clubs are welcome to attend for a
pleasant evening of chess, especially whilst they wait for other leagues to
resume face-to-face matches.
