A KNIGHT TO REMEMBER
Club member Michael Hemming fulfilled a lifetime's ambition by successfully completing The Knight's Tour in a pre-Christmas entertainment at the club. The Knight's Tour involves moving a knight around all of the chess board's 64 squares without being placed on a square twice. Michael achieved this without looking, with the moves being recorded on a display board. Assisting Michael was Jaimie Wilson, left, and Adam Rafael Holmes, centre.
