Sunday Chess in Bath
Due to unforeseen last-minute circumstances, the Street Chess session in Bath was cancelled on Sunday (12th July). Please accept my apologies to all those who turned up for a game, the university equipment was unfortunately locked away and access was not possible in time. Please note that Bath and North East Somerset council are very supportive of the street chess idea, so anyone wishing to take along their own sets and hang out for game by the Abbey are more than welcome on any given Sunday - there seems to be no shortage of players passing by!
The next planned session will go ahead as scheduled (July 26th) and will incorporate a giant chess set sponsored by the University of Bath Alumni fund.
Have I really blown this position - Surely not ?
