20.09.2012 - Following the club AGM a couple of weeks ago, I thought I should circulate something about subscriptions and English Chess Federation membership requirements in advance of the new season.


Subscriptions are as follows, i.e. at the same level as last season:


Adults £40.00; Juniors/senior citizens/concessions £20.



  The Old School House and 

St Bartholomew's Church

Please pay these over to either your team captains or directly to me, or else post them to me at The Old Farmhouse, 7 Church Street, Ducklington, Witney, Oxon OX29 7UA (but please note discount point below).


Club members who will be playing in the Oxfordshire League (so in effect pretty much all club members) will need to join the English Chess Federation's membership scheme. Playing league chess will need Bronze level membership, which costs £12.00 (adult) and £8.00 (junior) if you sign up on line. Signing up on line is much the easiest way to do it as far as I can see (I did it yesterday for Joseph and it took around three minutes); the link to the relevant part of the English Chess Federation website is here:


If you are going to be playing congress chess as well (for example the Witney Rapidplay or the Kidlington Congress) you may want to consider joining at Silver membership level instead, which costs £18.00 (adult) and £12.00 (junior) if you join on line. If you would prefer not to join on line, you can contact the English Chess Federation office on 01424 775222 - although please note that going down this route will cost an extra £1.00.


In recognition of the fact that the club will no longer be paying league fees to the Oxfordshire Chess Association under the new English Chess Federation membership regime, I am proposing a discount of £5.00 (adult) and £2.50 (junior) off subscriptions if, when you pay your subscriptions, you also let me have your English Chess Federation membership number (note that this is NOT the same number as your grading code). Club members who are already members of the English Chess Federation may also claim this discount off their subscriptions.


The new season starts on 8 October, and it would be very helpful if I could have your subscriptions and English Chess Federation membership numbers by then please.
