The Club Championships finished up on Monday, with Dave Salter and Lukasz Kwiatek finishing joint 1st, with Kevin Butler in 3rd. Well done to all who played and to Brendan and Mick for organizing it amidst the venue upheavals.
Please note a special EGM will be held in the Teachers club 36 Parnell Square next Thursday 13th June at 8pm sharp.
Agenda. To discuss the future of the club, to find new suitable premises to play chess.
Any member who knows anywhere that we can use please tell a committee member so we can check it out.
A full attendance of members is expected so everybody can have their say.
Sadly An Oige informed us that they are closing the Dublin premises in mid-July. So we have to source alternative premises at quite short notice.
So if anyone has any ideas or suggestions could they let one of the Committee (Bernard, Breandán, Brendan, Mick, Conor, Tom Paddy or Peter) know and we shall investigate and hopefully we can find a suitable place asap.
What an exciting league it was this year. Well done to our heidenfeld side who was oh so close to being promoted, being one of 4 teams in 2nd place on points, unfortunately on tie-break we finished in 3rd place. Excellent wins for Mohammad, Kevin and Marc, and a draw for Conor. Dave pushed for a win, as we tried to ensure we would win, however it wasn’t to be. Thanks to everyone who played and especially those who substituted for us when we needed it.
Our Ennis side finished strongly the last few rounds to maintain its league position as well, remarkably all 6 players played ever game this season.
Good Luck to everyone playing in the Club Championships which starts tonight.
The Last Round of the Leinster Leagues takes place in ALSAA, Dublin Airport, on Sunday 19th of May. The Heidenfeld starts at 10AM.
Best of Luck to all our sides.
Another great night of blitz chess in the club. Well done to Oisin for winning the competition, and to everyone who played. Many thanks to Bernard, Herbert, Mick and Brendan for organizing the competition.

Our Heidenfeld trophy side won 5-3 away to Inchicore on Thursday, in Round 10 of the leagues.
Wins for Kevin, Conor, Colm, and Oisin, and draws for Dave and Art. Dario was very unlucky in a long game. That should keep us in the mix in the last round.
