2013 – 2014 League format

August 27, 2013 in News

A note from Eggert -

Please be aware the format of the next season will be :

Div 1
As in previous seasons, Games can be played on or before the designated match date on any day of the week by agreement of team captains (although currently mainly played on Saturdays). This will probably be an all-play-all depending on entries. Please let me know your teams and nominated players and Captains as soon as you can!

Div 2
This year, by consideration of the committee, it was decided to trail removing the North/South split and run an all County 2nd Div. Format will be as per 1st Div i.e. any day of the week on or prior to the designated match date. This will also probably be an all-play-all depending on entries. Please let me know your teams and nominated players and Captains as soon as you can!

Whitaker Cup
As per previous seasons. As above please let me know your team(s) and nominated players and Captains as soon as you can!

Please be mindful that it is impossible for me to draw up a definitive match table without knowing what teams are playing. There are a number of teams / clubs who have or are considering changing their nominations. The problem i have is that it’s not a case of altering the entries slightly. If I end up with a different number of teams the whole process needs to be repeated so I’m sure you can appreciate i am not keen to start without being sure of the facts and your commitment to take part.

So can i repeat my plea to all club secretaries to get your teams, captains and nominated players to me as soon as you possibly can.

At present I have Ulverston, Kendal, Maryport and SASRA

The sketched outline form the coming season is listed in the Fixtures page.

Junior Organisers Report

June 25, 2013 in Junior Chess, News

The following report and the Junior Chess Accounts can be seen on the Library page.

The 2012-2013 Season

2012-2013 has been a fairly successful year in terms of maintaining and building on our Junior Chess activity.

At primary level there are established school leagues in the Penrith and Carlisle areas with roughly 150 children participating from between 15 and 20 schools. There are also a number of established one-off events that act as feeders for the County Junior Championships e.g. the Carlisle U9s and U11s qualifiers, the Plumpton qualifer, and the Appleby Shield Championship.

This year we’ve managed to extend our ‘range’ a bit with a new primary school event in Keswick. We’ve started running some one-day chess workshops for children during school holidays (one held and two more planned for the Summer).

At secondary level we’ve had anincrease in interest in the inter-school league with a couple of new schools taking part. On the down side however we weren’t able to field a team in the Pennine Cup competition this season and so lost the title undefended.

The County Junior Championships were held on May 19th at Trinity School Carlisle. Numbers attending were roughly comparable with previous years, though for the first time in quite a while we actually had sufficient entries at U13, U15 and U18 levels to hold separate events in each category.
