Unfortunately only 5 people have expressed an interest, so I won't be going ahead with organising a social this year.

Maybe next year ...

Unfortunately I'm not available for the first 3 weekends in August, so the Social would have to be on Saturday, 27th August.

Please continue to let me know if you're definitely (or fairly definitely) interested. I have in mind a pub in London (yet to be found!), within reasonable reach of shops/sights, so that partners/family members/travelling companions who don't like chess (it's true, there are such people!) can amuse themselves for the afternoon.

The Social would run from around midday to 5-5.30 p.m., with an evening meal afterwards for those that were interested.

Beginners and GMs, and all of us in between, are all equally welcome. The games are friendly, there's no competition, and newer players often enjoy the opportunity to play against experienced players over the board.

As I've said before ... even if we do go ahead, please don't book a holiday to the UK, or even from further afield within the UK, just on the strength of the Social. The Social is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people, and play lots of chess; but it's not a holiday destination in itself!

As soon as I have enough people interested, I'll go ahead and book a venue.

I would be interested, but unfortunately I will be in London in late July, not August this year. My wife and I go to the UK pretty much every year as she considers London her second home (she lived there for 10 years from '86 to '96).

Thank you to those who have expressed an interest so far. We are currently exploring the feasibility of a London social this summer.

Incidentally, there has never been any cost to members for attending the socials, other than paying for one's own travel/accommodation, and one's own food and drink.
