Ulster Chronicles

In readiness for a new season, previous year's content gets moved into our annual archives (the Ulster Chronicles) to make room for the new. If you authored some of this content, you still have ownership of it, items are just moved to a new location.

Slowly but surely the archives are receiving content from previous years including Ulster News postings and newspaper reports from Rookies clippings service. Our games archive is starting to build up too!

Remember folks, anyone can add reports, games and photos - as long as they are relevant to Ulster Chess, of course. It is easier than it looks too; if you can word-process you can create great looking articles. All you need to do is log-in to the site and you are good to go.
