    Newcastle University Chess Society with support from Newcastle University and AB Connexions are hosting a charity chess boxing gala and a live auction on Saturday 27th April 2013 at Newcastle Civic Centre. Tickets for the event are available at http://newcastlecityhall.org/event/chess-boxing-charity-gala/ and we are allowing companies to buy tables for the event. This is the first time an event of this nature has occured outside of the capital city of London. Attached is more information for the event. The society are hoping to raise £10,000 for the charities that we are supporting. Grandmaster Stephen Gordon will be hosting the gala. 


    We will also have a live auction on the night and throughout the month and our headline auction item is:

    And we also have other great auction items including:

    A chance to go to Hollywood, LA to audition in front of 25-30 agents and casting directors in either October 2013, March 2014 or July 2014.

    Chess Boxing?  When did they come up with that name? Somebody must have came across the Vote Chess game that had that name and they liked it.

    I think chess.com does not like these kind of things but Good Luck!

    Maybe if you put it in a group but ask the SA of the group first then Chess.com would allow it.
