AFTER A LONG period of inactivity the Chess Club reappeared in September, 1956. In the first few weeks membership rose to the forties. Eventually, however, it was only a few old faithfuls who attended regularly. During the summer term the Club underwent another period of inactivity which was due to the good weather.
On our return to school this year we were greeted by the news that we were drawn to play Felixstowe G.S. in the Suffolk Schools' Chess Competition. Owing to the 'flu epidemic, however, the match was postponed. At the moment we are arranging a date for the match, which should be played at home. We hope to do well in the competition, although Felixstowe are reputed to be one of the best schools participating.We must thank Mr. Rowland for placing his room at our disposal, helping to run the Club and also for entering us for the Schools' Competition.
