SNCL is now over for season 2016/17. At the AGM, the dates were set as 29th October, 26th November, 18th February (switching with Perth) and 25th April. Gavin Saxton is stepping down from the Arbiting team and we thank him for his years of service. Joining the team next season is Fiona Petrie.
Time controls are being changed next season to all moves in 90 minutes with a 30 second increment from move 1. To facilitate this, the start time is also being moved to 10am.
Now to the important bit, the results. Congratulations to Edinburgh 1, Inverclyde, Bon Accord and Lenzie Chess Academy in winning their respective divisions.
