Next Blitz tournament: Thursday 11 August

The next in our summer series of monthly blitz tournaments will be held on Thursday 11 August, in our normal room: upstairs in the Galway Bridge Centre, St Mary’s Road.  Starting time is 7.45 p.m., and the expected finishing time is about 10.30.  The format is 7 rounds, with each game played at a speed of 5 minutes for the game plus a 5 second increment per move.  We will provide all sets and clocks.  As this is not part of our regular season, there will be an entry fee of €5 to pay for the hire of the room, with any surplus returned in prizes.  To enter, just turn up on the night with your €5.  You do not need to be a club member.

We had a good turnout for our July blitz (both in terms of numbers and quality) and we are looking forward to seeing even more of you in August.
