Entry forms for the Harvey Shield and Samuel Graham are available for download and can be seen on the relevant pages.

The prizegiving and lightning tournament will be held at Greenwood on the 30th of May.

We have been loaned an almost complete set of Ayrshire Chess Bulletins and have now placed them on the site in the documents section

This completes what we have been generously allowed access to.

We have not got pages 6/7 of the 75/76 season and would like to receive any information about it's whereabouts.

The 31st edition consists of three pages which came out on the 26th December 1980. The possibility exists that the bulletins ceased publication at that point or a second bulletin out in, presumably, April or so would complete it. Any information as to what happened would be gratefully received.

If anyone has a copy of either buried somewhere we would be very interested in acquiring it to copy for the archive.

Due to the size of the paper used in the original it is sometimes necessary to scan a page twice to capture all the information which hopefully explains why there seems to be duplicate pages.
