The draw for the first round has been made. There will be a round each month for Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr and May, so this should be effectively an all play all, even though a Swiss pairing system will be used.
These first round games are to be played by end Oct 2014.
The white player is responsible for arranging the date and reporting the result back to me.
Due to there being 9 players, the will be a BYE each round for one lucky player (my german software lists this as a Speilfrie)
