PRIZES 2015 50th Dorset Chess Congress

  1. Ronnie Burton on said:

    Another well run Congress by Ian Clark & Team.
    My only non chess negative comment would be the venue. Breakfast arrangements poor again on the Sat and staff at reception need training on booking in guests on their arrival. Bar Staff would very helpful and greeting guests with a smile !

Silent Auction for Drueke Chess Board and Set

An exquisite chess set and board made by Drueke in US has kindly been donated to Dorset Chess in order to be used for the benefit of junior chess.

It has been decided that the best way to facilitate this is to sell the set and board in a silent auction which will be completed over the weekend of the Dorset Open Chess Congress.

The chess set and board is approximately 26 inches square so is larger than normal boards. Drueke boards and sets were made in US but ceased production about 5 years ago. Photo’s below.
