The Annual Meeting of the Suffolk County Chess Association will be held at the Ipswich Chess Club on Tuesday 30 May. This meeting is open to all chess-players, not just club secretaries and committee members. And if you turn up, you get a vote!
The Agenda contains a number of proposals for amending the competition rules. Amongst these are a couple which may require some discussion:
* Nominations. It is proposed that following publication of the mid-season grading list, re-nominations will only be permitted for a three-week period. Thereafter no further re-nominations will be allowed.
* Fischer timing. It is proposed that the use of incremental timings should become the default in Division 1. If both players are in agreement, the standard time control can be used.
Other proposals should be non-contentious. The Agenda has been circulated to all club secretaries.
