    The Cowley Summer Blitz tournament will be taking place on Monday 23rd June (in the evening, 7:15pm start). Anyone who lives within shouting distance of Oxford is welcome to enter. I was second, behind IM Harriet Hunt, in the last Cowley blitz tournament in December, but this was a bit of a fluke result as I'm not very good at blitz. Anyway, if anyone here intends to enter drop me a line and we can meet up for a drink beforehand (and afterhand).

    Cowley Summer Blitz

    will be held on Monday 23 June at Cowley Chess Club (now at Rose Hill
    Methodist Church). All chessplayers are welcome. As usual, there will be
    five double-rounds, a cash prize for the tournament winner, and lots of
    other prizes (books, etc.). If possible, please register your entry in
    advance via the web link below, where you will also find further
    details. Entry costs £3. (Donations of prizes will also be gratefully
    received.) Round 1 will start at 7:15pm sharp.

    Please note: Players who have *not* registered their entry in advance
    should arrive between 6:45pm and 7:00pm to enable pairing cards to be
    written and the first round draw to be made promptly. Prizegiving will
    be at approx. 9:45pm. (It will be possible for young juniors for whom a
    9:45pm finish is too late to play in either two rounds [8:05pm finish
    approx.] or four rounds [8:55pm finish approx.] if this is arranged in
    advance. Please select the relevant option on the online form if you
    wish to do this.)
