Our CSC Training Day tour was derailed in early 2020, for very obvious reasons.
Now we are back on track, starting with yesterday's return to London for the first time in almost two years.It was very good good to be back at the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith, which is a perfect venue for our days.
We had a bumper collection of delegates, who worked hard all day on various tasks, including learning how to teach and play the famous chess mini-games.
We also broke our own training day record for our youngest delegate, thanks to the participation of 13-year-old Andrei, who is already wanting to give something back to the chess community. This beat our previous record, set on a beautiful day in Glasgow three years ago, by one year.
Matt Piper and I both enjoyed working with everyone and we were also very pleased to see our friends Nevil Chan and Chris Fegan call in to support the day.
Thank you, everyone, for supporting our event.
More dates will soon be added to the Training Day Tour, so please keep an eye on this page.
Here is a gallery from our busy day in Hammersmith.
