17 members of Bury St Edmunds Chess Club, including several Ipswich players who are also members of the club, met on Monday night at Oakes Barn in Bury for a Christmas meal. The event was organised by John Peters and will almost certainly be repeated next year. Numbers had to be restricted due to the limited space available.
After an excellent three-course meal (costing only £12.50 pp), most members stayed on for some Blitz games of chess.
