Want to join one of the most popular chess websites in the country?

Our website is going from strength to strength so now we are looking for support in a whole host of ways! We have been running just over twelve months, during this time we have built the core framework of the website. We provide the essential information for most clubs and leagues whilst publishing reports on matches played in our thriving Yorkshire Chess League.

What are we looking for?

  • Photographers, we want to publish many more pictures and videos of events that are played within Yorkshire & beyond. If you’re travelling to an event why not take a few snaps and send them to us?
  • Report writers, we want to update our visitors with the latest news from many of our events around Yorkshire. Many congresses pass us by because we haven’t heard anything about them, let’s change that!
    • A short write up of your own experience of the event
    • Fully annotated game(s)
    • Summary of the entire event, this can include; results, pictures, games, special thanks.
  • Quiz hosts, we have run two very successful chess quizzes so we really want to run more! Do you have what it takes to write the best chess general knowledge quiz?
    • Tactical Puzzles
    • Name That Chess Player
    • Know your Lucena from your Philidor’s position?
  • Web developers, we know that many of you are keen programmers so would welcome any help, we would like to build a fully interactive games database where users can submit, view and download games played within Yorkshire. Is this a challenge you are up to?
  • Promoters, we are looking to increase our readership but to do this we need to promote our website. Is this a skill you have in abundance?[/typography]
