Camberley Chess Club’s annual Christmas event will, for the first time, be held on-line this year.  After a short welcome and review of recent and forthcoming club activities by new Chairman Martin Wallman, the main event will be a quiz hosted on Zoom by Club Secretary (and former Egghead Challenger) Steve Harley.  There will be a range of General Knowledge rounds, interspersed with some chess questions.  Participants will be allocated on the night to teams in Zoom breakout rooms.  We expect some competitive and fun quizzing to ensue.  May the best team win!  Please provide your own drinks and (optional) festive attire!

Once upon a time, before the days of strong analysis engines, correspondence chess was a worthy activity for players to learn openings, practise middlegame and endings.

Strong correspondence players tended to be potentially strong OTB players.

Colin Lyne will take us through some his earliest postal games.
