Next Blitz: Thursday 18 July

Our July Blitz Tournament will be held on Thursday 18 July, upstairs in the Bridge Centre, St Mary’s Road, starting at 7.45.  As usual, there will be seven rounds, at a speed of 5 minutes for the game plus an increment of 5 seconds per move, so we would expect to finish at about 10.30.  We will provide all equipment; there will be an entry fee of €5, and any money left over after we’ve paid for the rent of the room will be returned in PRIZES!  Visitors to Galway are very welcome to enter – as are Galway residents, of course.
