Sussex County Chess Association

The Sussex County Chess Association (SCCA) is holding its AGM on Tuesday 25th September, starting at 7:45 pm, at the Lewes Chess Club Venue (St Mary's Supporters Club, Christie Road, Lewes BN7 1PL).

The Association has been struggling over the last couple of years due to a lack of volunteers to take on various roles. For the 2018 / 19 season we are only able to enter an Open team in the County Championships. In part, this is due to a lack of team captains. I’m sure I'm not alone amongst the County’s lower echelons of players who will very much miss the opportunity to participate in this competition. The SCCA is also looking for a new Secretary and to be able to revitalise our various in-County competitions.

Please make the effort to come along to the AGM and support our County. We look forward to seeing as many there as possible. If you might be able to take on one of the vacancies, so much the better. If this is the case, but you are unable to make the AGM, then please let myself and / or Robert Elliston (SCCA President) know in advance.
