New calendar, new captain – please make contact

2021’s calendar of Auckland Chess Centre is up.

With most people traveling or attending the New Zealand Congress in Palmerston North early January, the club will resume on Jan 18.

Please also note: the new club captain is Timothy Ha. During the next few weeks please send Tim your contact details via Facebook or email timothyha at gmail or text via phone O21-O88O-1O35. Please state the following information:

  • your name (and your child’s name, if you’re a chess parent) as registered with either FIDE and/or NZCF
  • the mobile number for text messages during club nights, so you can inform Tim of your absence (or your child’s) and he can recognise you


First several weeks of 2021:

  • Jan 18 — a casual night
  • Jan 25 — 9 rounds of 3+2 blitz, FIDE-rated
  • Then two back-to-back weekenders, held at ACC!

See you soon in 2021!
