Ulster Blitz filling up.


With mere days to go before the big event (not Christmas) the Ulster blitz is rapidly filling up. You can see the entry list below.


The Blitz this year is turning into something of a family grudge tournament. We have the Gillen’s, the McIlroys, the Corr’s (not those ones) and even the Neill’s coming in from Spain to settle the family scores.


We really should have gotten some interfamily prizes for this. But we did not. What we did do is get nine, yes nine high class shields as prizes. We will have a Champion, 2nd and 3rd. We will also have the same for Intermediate and Junior. The grading bands will be decided closer the time depending on entries.


There is also a great selection of Ulster clubs involved. Bangor, Lisburn, Strand and Greenisland. Will we get anyone to uphold the pride of Civil Service, Roaming Knights, and Derry. These are the only Ulster Clubs. We have people from Spain and Ireland and some people hoping to have a winning homecoming.


Remember we will also be awarding the Jamison Cup to the Ulster Champion. In order to be Ulster Champion you have to have been born within the nine counties of Ulster, and if you are a new comer to Ulster you have to have had an address in Ulster for the last 12 months.


It’s shaping up to be a highly competitive day. There are still places available. Get in touch, book your place.


Payment of entry fee secures your place. It’s still £12, and it’s still a bargain.


Funds will go towards Prizes, venue donation and the Ulster Chess Union.
