Every year since 2001, the Fairfield RSL Chess Club has hosted two weekenders - the Winter and Summer Cups. These events are typically Category 2 or higher. The existence of these two events have only been made possible mainly through the generosity of the "mother club", the RSL.
Yesterday, I was rather saddened to learn that one of these events (possibly the Summer version) may need to be retired. But more than this, the very existence of the chess club itself may be under jeopardy. More later.
