Website Success

The website has only been up a week and it’s already had its first success. A new possible member Charlie came to play chess. He used to play many years as a junior in the Wolverhampton Chess League and now with more time on his hands , he has dusted off the old chess books, had a go online and now wants to try his luck against real people.

Last week another long lost member Allan Blackburn has returned to blow the cobwebs from his mind. He told us stories of playing against Lance Oliver, a stalwart of times gone by, a real champion of Chess. My goal is to bring back some of those long lost memories of the club, and it’s great that things are already starting to happen.
