                  At the Old Town Hall we'll have two floors for the playing area. The Junior and U1300 sections will be at the ground floor, all other sections upstairs. The building is equipped with an elevator.

                      Bernie is discussing discounts for chess players at the nearby restaurants on the Main Street in Newmarket.

                        Great idea! Maybe menus and discount coupons can be available in the tournament hall. It's nice to see other chess players in the same restaurant.

                          Thnx Erik for advice. Bernie should arrange that the club business cards should be sufficient.
