Well done to all clubs and their teams for an excellent, competitive season across the B&DCL & County Leagues!

The AGM's are upon us, of course, with the DCCA due to take place at Poole Weds, 26 July.

Notes and details of rule changes for B&DCL following the 19 June AGM are now available on the Dorset Chess website.

One decision was to extend the use of Time Increments to B&D 2 next season, as the default option. Time Increments can be used in B&D 3 to 5, but only if both captains agree in advance. Currently in the 3 Dorset Leagues, Time Increments apply to Div 1 only, but can be used in the 2 lower divisions if the captains agree in advance.

As per last year, once the league team entries are known there will be a first draft of fixtures - by mid August latest. These will be displayed on the website.

Have a great summer.

Best regards,

Mike (County and B&D Controller)
