CASTLEHILL CHESS CLUB DUNDEE ON-LINE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the enthusiastic efforts of Declan Shafi, Castlehill Chess Club on-line opened at the end of March 2020. It was so well received we are looking to keep it as an on-line extension of our OTB club.
We are only in the trial faze running arena events, but we hope by next season to be running other on-line club events. To join us on-line you will need to join/register either one, or both the following chess game websites:
- lichess.org – A totally free chess website: https://lichess.org/
- chess.com – A free chess website with the option to pay for more stuff!: https://www.chess.com/
On both websites we have set up a “Castlehill Chess Club” space and we would like you to join us on-line.
For how to join us if you are not sure (it is very easy to do!), we have made guides which hopefully will guide you through the process! We will manly be playing on lichess.org, but chess.com will be used as well to cover all basis.
Since Declan Shafi took our chess club on-line, it has been open to all who join for free, even our friends and possible new members. You do not have to be a member of our OTB chess club.
In the future when we hold “official Club Tournaments“, these will only be open to paid members of our OTB chess club. For those who are too far away, or much prefer “on-line chess”, we will be offering a new on-line chess club membership (too be discussed at next AGM), which would allow those with it to take part in “ALL” on-line official club competitions! Those players that are, or take up OTB Club membership will automatically be able to play in all official competitions. including on-line!
This is a work in progress and due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it will take time to iron out all the details, but regardless;
Castlehill Chess Club online is “HERE TO STAY”!
