Stop Press: Change of Club Premises

GMCC New Premises 1Important: from Tuesday, 18th September, Glasgow Montrose Chess Club will be based at Burnside Bowling Club, 235 Woodlands Road, G3 6NN. The club will be meeting on Tuesday nights (7:30pm) instead of Thursday.

Sadly, the RAFA club, which has hosted GMCC since 1990, will be closing down in February 2008. We therefore decided to change premises as soon as possible, especially since the Glasgow League fixtures for 2007-08 list is soon to be finalised.
