Games must be played over-the-board, with a clock at the 60+5 time control, on or before 14 November, at the The Bungo (including the Club nights of Tue 31 Oct and Tue 14 Nov), or in another public space.
You can contact your opponent by speaking to them at the Club, by posting in the Club Championship WhatsApp group, or by contacting a Committee Member to request their contact details (we have obtained GDPR consent from members to share details with their opponent for the purpose of rescheduling Club Championship ties if required).
If you do not show up for your game on Tue 7 Nov, and make no attempt to contact your opponent or notify a Committee Member beforehand, you will lose the game by default. Repeat offenders will be removed from the tournament.
