Our Christmas Quickplay competition was an all-play-all event – good fun with a lot of games to play in an evening!
Congratulations to our winner, Jonathan Wells, with a 100% score. Also well done to Martin Burnham for the grading prize, and Thomas Larner for the junior prize.
The Acclaimed Norfolk Chess Magazine
En Passant is the monthly Norfolk chess magazine. It is immensely popular – nearly 100 subscribers for a single county must be some kind of record, and it is probably read by far more than that number. It is also highly acclaimed, having been named BCF Magazine of the Year in 2004 and ECF Magazine of the Year in 2007 and 2009, the only years in which it entered the competition. Norfolk chess magazines have been produced on and off for several decades at least – one collection has them going back to 1964. Its current incarnation grew out of the results bulletins that the Norfolk League Controller, John Charman, sent regularly to club secretaries. That turned into the monthly En Passant in November 1995, and it has been published every month ever since.

A nice game from Jack on board 2 playing Brian Cunningham from St Johns Knights. Thanks to Alan for letting us post this!
This is game I played last Friday against Andrew Gilling from Broadland. It was a board 2 game. We lost the match 2 1/2 – 1 1/2 overall, so well done to Broadland. 🙂
A good win for me using my favourite opening – the King’s Gambit! Think the sacrifice on f7 was a little unsound but black had to play very accurately afterwards.
We play in the Norfolk League and have 2 teams, the Seals (Division 2) and the Crabs (Division 3).
We run a Club Championship throughout the season (standard play), and also a rapidplay competition.
If you love playing chess or would like to learn how to play, then please contact us, or just call in on a club evening and have a chat and a game.
The list is calculated on games played up to 30th June 2014. Congratulations to Peter Bond, Jonathan Wells, Dave Clear, Edward Hackford, Mike Sallon, Jack Evans, Tony Larnerand Tom Larner, whose grades all went up this year. Good job.
