    Notice of Closure of Melbourne Chess Club


    Dear MCC Members and visitors to MCC club,

    Given the spread of the global Coronavirus (COVID-19), it has become necessary for MCC to take additional measures to safeguard the health of all MCC patrons.

    The MCC committee has made the difficult decision to close the club. As such, MCC will be closed indefinitely following the conclusion of Round 6 of the 2020 MCC Club Championship on the 16th March 2020.

    After the 16th Match 2020, MCC will not be open on any day of the week, and as a result all weekly events i.e. the Monday night long-play tournaments, the Tuesday evening blitz, the Wednesday social night, Julia Ryjanova’s Thursday Coaching Masterclass, the Friday social night, the Saturday morning junior class, and the Saturday afternoon Allegro, will be cancelled.
    Note: Julia Ryjanova’s Thursday class will still run for one session on the 19th March 2020.

    For further information please see the letter attached to this email.

    Yours sincerely,

    The MCC Committee

    WGM Julia Ryjanova's Thursday master class continuing (via Skype)

    Good news - WGM Julia Ryjanova's usual Thursday night masterclass is continuing!

    The masterclass will (for now) be done via group Skype call, instead of in-person at MCC premises.

    Details on how to join Julia's masterclass on MCC's website (http://www.melbournechessclub.org/le.../groupcoaching) are as set out below:

    --------------------------------------
    Master Class with WGM Julia Ryjanova has now gone virtual. Here is how it works:

    1. Every Wednesday I will send 6 puzzles to all the participants to solve. The puzzles usually belong to one topic which is not disclosed at the beginning (test yourself like in a real game). Different topics are covered (it can be tactics, strategy, endgame etc). Do NOT use computer assistance if you would like to learn something.

    2. We will meet on Skype group call at 7:30pm on Thursday and I will do 45 minutes lesson on the topic all puzzles belong to.

    3. After the lesson I’ll send the answers to the participants so you could check them even if you missed out on the Skype meeting.

    4. Email Julia at juliauburn@yahoo.com if you would like to join and for details. Costs: $10 for one lesson or $30 prepaid for month.

    Where: On the Cloud - virtual

    When: Thursday 7.30pm - 8.30pm

    Contact: Julia Ryjanova (juliauburn@yahoo.com)

    Cost: $10 for one lesson or $30 prepaid for month
    Ages: all ages
