The server sent down during this evening's tournament. My game was declared a "draw". I have reported this as a bug to chess.com.

One of the main aims of the new club is to make it easier for members to compete against other players from the West Midlands whom they may often know personally or by reputation. Therefore it would be appreciated if members would give their real names in the 'profile' section for their 'usernames'. You can even provide a personal photo if you like!
