Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 7 July 26, 1944
The first annual meeting of the Chess Club will be held in Room C.4 on Wednesday, 26th July, at 7.30 p.m.
All interested are urged to be present. Agenda for the meeting can be seen at the Exec. notice board.
After the official business has been transacted there will be an informal Lightning Tourney (10 seconds a move).
The league teams have continued to make satisfactory progress. The A Grade team, after going down against Working Men's Club by 1-4, then took on the strongest team (on paper at least) in the competition, i.e., Wellington "Red." After about three hours of play, two games were finished, one win being scored by either side. The remaining three games are to be adjudicated, while the sixth game has been postponed. At Boards 1 and 2, Varsity appears to have at least even positions, and on only one board is it at a disadvantage.
The B Grade team has played two more matches, recovering well from a bad start. The first match was won by 4½-1½, and the next drawn 3-3, both against strong opposition.
