Palmerston North Speed Chess Championship

Wednesday the 7th of March is the start of the Palmerston North Chess Club Blitz Championship. It will be held over two nights with a time control of 3 mins each with a two second increment. The increment gives players a chance not to lose on time in equal positions and games can sometimes last longer than a 5 / 0, so don't be scared by only having 3 minutes.

The AGM was held recently with some positive movement. Dennis has done a good job as President/treasurer but he will not longer have the stress of these roles. Martin Sims is the now club treasurer and Mathew king (that's me) has taken on the role as club president. Stewart will maintain his role as club captain. Full minutes will come out in next week's club magazine.
