We are about playing chess, making friends and playing chess in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. There are no ratings, this is strictly email chess. The club is, and will always remain, a FREE Chess Club!. If our style of chess is for you, we welcome you! If you are interested in joining us, please send me an e-mail to: pauldfawcett{at}outlook.com

I will provide help as needed to the "newbies". If you desire, I will contact members to help you get a game going but feel free to contact any of the members for a game. From time to time, we also organise tournaments which will be handled by our tournament director Rick Bowman.

When starting a game with a member, it's wise to discuss a time frame for your moves. Some players will send a move once or even twice a day, some members may want to take longer due to many factors, work schedules etc. If you're going to be offline for whatever reason, take a minute to notify your opponent! Don't be too quick to get your shorts in a bunch if you don't hear from your opponent for awhile, his computer might have crashed, possibly sickness, or a death in the family.

I would also advise you to get a chess recording program if you are going to play multiple games. You can find several on the "Freebies" page. Playing chess and talking to people from different areas or countries is a lot of fun! The games you play with other members are YOUR games and your conversations are totally private.

So sit back, relax, play some chess and have fun talking and learning a little about the other members!

Thank you for your interest and do please feel free to offer suggestions!

Dave Fawcett.
