2023 AGM

The 2023 AGM was held at Meir on Monday evening. Several changes to both the Constitution and League Playimg Rules were made. These will be distributed by our new General Secretary, Neil Hankey, along with the Minutes of the Meeting, in due course.

There were a couple of changes to the NSDCA Officers, with Neil Hankey taking over from Robert West as General Secretary and Colin Abell taking over from Steve Emmerton as LMS Administrator. Steve will, however, continue as Webmaster. All relevant Contact Details have been updated on the NSDCA website.

We also welcomed a new Club to the league - Gables Chess Club, run by Chris Hankey.

Would all Clubs please notify Colin Abell, by the 31st August, how many teams they will be entering in the coming season, and the likely overall playing strength of each team, in terms of rating. Colin will then allocate Teams to Divisions, in the same way as we did last season. You do not need to let Colin know of your potential Cup Competition entries until the end of December, as the draw(s) for these will not be made until January.
