  1. I was born in 1966 and went to school in Kenilworth until 1984, and my parents still
    live there. I'm wondering who the best Kenilworth chess players were, particularly in
    my era. I'm thinking that the outstanding player in that category is Adam Collinson who was approx BCF 220 strength. Have there been any other Kenilworth players of similar standing? Thanks. Paul Epstein

  2. You have already answered your own question. Adam Collinson was probably the strongest player to play for the club. He eventually achieved IM status.

    His brother Mark, a couple of years younger, was also a very handy player, but as he grew through his teens he started to loose interest in playing chess, so we will never know if Mark was the stronger player. I personally thought he had the potential.

    It was Ed Goodwin and myself who are the only remaining founder members from the original 12 who met in January 1975 in David Tilley's house. It started very informally, and we played in a scout hut for the first four months, moving to a few other premises on the way, before having the Kenilworth Sports and Social Club as our venue for about 25 years. The club now has a venue to League Matches, and another to play 'skittles' at the Gauntlet on Thursday evenings.

    Whilst still a member of the club, I rarely attend, since I now live 80 miles away in a remote location in the hills. Maybe I get across about twice a year.
