Chess Club

Chess Club

This year the club has had very little support from its members. The dub nights for the first term were attended by only a few people, the excuse given by the others being that the club nights were not suitable.

The executive then was asked to choose a night suitable to the majority. Thursday evening was chosen, in the second term the attendance to date has been practically all. As a result, the teams entered by Vic. in the competitions have made a very poor showing, although the club teams were runners-up in the E grade and won the C grade.

The results so far read as follows:
  • B grade. V.U.C. c. Wellington, lost 5½-½.
  • C grade. V.U.C. v. Civic—draw.
  • V.U.C. v. Wellington College, lost 0-2.

These results are a poor reflection on the present members of the club, after last year's record when the club started in the second term; and we hope we will get more support during the rest of the term from those persona who listed themselves as members earlier.
