With effect from Monday 13th July we're increasing the time allowed per board by one minute on Monday mornings. This means that Monday morning sessions will play 16 boards at a more leisurely rate of 8 minutes per board. We're making this change because we've noticed that numbers on Monday mornings have been lower than those on Friday mornings, and we think that this may be because some players feel a bit rushed when playing at a pace of 7 minutes per board. This change is an experiment, and we'll continue to monitor numbers and make further changes if/when needed.
Our regular weekly online competitive sessions are now as follows:
Monday mornings at 10 am, playing 16 boards at a rate of 8 minutes per board.
Wednesday afternoons at 2.00 pm, playing 15 or 16 boards at a rate of 9 minutes per board, with video conferencing. Pre-booking required.
Wednesday evenings at 7.30 pm, playing 18 boards at a rate of 7 minutes per board.
Thursday evenings at 7.15 pm, playing 15 or 16 boards at a rate of 9 minutes per board, with video conferencing. Pre-booking required.
Friday mornings at 10 am, playing 16 boards at a rate of 8 minutes per board.
Entry fee 4BB$ (about £3.20). Results will be masterpointed and will count towards NGS.
Players of all abilities are welcome to take part. Non-members from Oxford and the surrounding area (ie Oxfordshire), or former members/people who have played regularly at the club are also welcome. Additionally, OBC members may play with a visitor from outside the Oxford area.
