and here

Is this the start of those thousands upon thousands of free sets being allocated to schools?

Gerry's grade has reached three digits on occasions. He knows Garry Kasparov 'well'? Must be all those games they've played together down the years Very Happy

As for the chess sets: 250,000 promised; 20 delivered so far - ten in Hastings; ten in Gerry's backyard. At this rate, the last lot should appear in schools around 4675 AD Very Happy

250,000! I hope Mr Walsh has a very large garage. As Merseyside junior organiser; do you know when and where these sets/boards are to be allocated David? Sounds like more than enough to go around all schools.

Chess for Schools on the ECF Forum: http://forum.bcfservices.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=316

I hope that in order for these free sets to be successfully distributed to schools: a). The only profit made is for Chess itself and b) peeps put their differences aside in helping distribute them.

250,000 Chess Sets! And so much negativity from so many quarters - perhaps expecting these sets to be used as firewood by schools perhaps?

There are quarter of a million Chess Sets in a holding, that's a fact, it's a thing we can't deny, and I'd love to see them distributed before I die. Laughing Sorry Katie
