Monday night of Nov 1 – Swiss rapid, Friday Nov 5 – blitz arena + OTB on 21/12

We’re on our usual schedule these days, Monday Swiss rapid, 10+5, and Friday blitz arena, 3+2.

Please join the Monday Swiss closer to the tournament start time, as if you’re late, you’re going to forfeit the first game, lose rating points and make your opponent unhappy (or happy, depending on their attitude towards “free” rating points).

Monday, Nov 1, 7:30 pm, – join about 10-15 mins in advance.

Friday, Nov 5, is an arena, you can join in advance, then come play, pause or leave any time between 7:30 and 9:30 pm,

The Howick Chess Club is also planning to organise a rapid OTB tournament called “Auckland Christmas Friendship Tournament” on December 21 (Tuesday), please see details on
