Stellenbosch Chess Club Year End Picnic at Jan Marais Nature Reserve

Stellenbosch Chess Club Members had a picnic with their famillies at the Jan Marais Nature Reserve on Sunday 11 December 2016 to end off the year on an informal note.

In the shade of the big trees a few tables were set out, and games of chess and Boulles took place. Good fun with good natured ribbing on the side!

Plans are already underway to make this a yearly event (maybe a bit earlier in December), so look out for this on the calendar next year.

SAJCC 2016 – 16-23 December 2106

Excitement is running high, with team uniforms and bags having being delivered, team training done and last minute preparations being made for the big trip to the Birchwood Conference Center in Boksburg.

We want to wish all the Stellenbosch Chess Players, as well as all our chess neighbors taking part in this year’s team competition, all the best.

You can follow all the action on  Chess-Results.  The team lists have been uploaded, but board order may still change.

Good luck to those of you braving the Wild Card as well!
