Pre-Season Events

We have two events coming up for our members next month.

First up, a BBQ on 5 September. I think it’s more a beautifully timed pre-season event than a belated end of season event!

The Club Committee has decided to arrange a belated end of season BBQ on Saturday 9th September for up to 25 attendees in total (any Club members who want to bring family or friends are of course welcome to do so) to be held in the garden of The Adelaide at 57 Park Road, Teddington.

It’ll take place from 5pm to 8pm with food ready about 6pm.

The BBQ menu  is a burger + pork white sausage + potato salad + coleslaw, mixed salad & chicken skewers for £18.95

Please let us know if you are vegetarian, as the menu will then be adjusted appropriately – they do a veggie burger, haloumi & veggie sausage for the same price.

We would ask attendees to transfer £18.95 asap to RTCC’s a/c at Lloyds Bank sort code 309706 / Acc # 00933405, ensuring that your name is clearly shown.   

Please also email our Treasurer, Julian Bedale on of your attendance so he can keep track of numbers.  We will have to let Mariana, the landlady of the pub, know final numbers by 2nd September, so please advise us by then. Drinks will obviously be extra.
It should be a fun occasion, & we hope to see you there!

Then, on Tuesday 19 September, Simon and Andrew are running a blitz tournament.

This September sees the return of the club Blitz tournament at the Adelaide pub. A Swiss tournament will comprise six rounds of 10-minute blitz games. We encourage players of all abilities to come along for some blundertastic fun!
