We’d like to share our plans for this month – with some of the specifics to be announced later on via our WhatsApp chats. Read on for details:
A new season begins!
Hammersmith will soon be battling again in the different Leagues we play in, and there could be no better warm up than taking part in our friendly match against our visitors from Belgium: a few spots are still open so let John White know if you wish to play on Friday 8/9 and/or Saturday 9/9.
There is still some work to be done regarding the final composition of all the league divisions and the numbers of teams we will enter this year, but captains will start reaching out to members once our fixtures have been scheduled.
The Return of Junior Hour
Junior Hour (JH) starts once again on Monday 4/9 at 6pm after the summer break, this time with our new Junior Officer Tom Townsend as agreed on our latest AGM.
The fees structure has been changed from a term basis to an annual basis so it’s now a flat £100 per annum, in addition to the regular club membership for each junior. We have a page with additional details on Junior Hour
September Club Nights
Upcoming events on our Monday nights from 7:30pm are listed below, details and sign up forms (when needed) will be shared on our WhatsApp chats.
Monday 4/9: Internal Tournament hosted by Club Captain Robin Sarfas
Monday 11/9: Challenge one of our first team players in a simul exhibition
Monday 18/9: Special event with IM Callum Kilpatrick, member of our sister club in the 4NCL: the Celtic Tigers
Monday 25/9: The best and worst game of each World Champion, with Jim Stevenson presenting the legendary Bobby Fischer
We hope you’ll enjoy everything we have planned for September! See you soon at the MSC
