GP5 at Sevenoaks School on Sunday 16th February 2020

A reminder that our GP5 tournament is this coming Sunday 16th February 2020, at Sevenoaks School, High St, Sevenoaks TN13 1HU

It would be good to see our young chess players at the event and we hope that it will be a fun day of chess and meeting up with friends.

Please register as soon as you can at:  http://www.kjca.org/event/230

It is great that we have a venue such as Sevenoaks School for our tournament.  
It is a large and prestigious school and there are always a lot of different events and activities going on, as well as some school boarders and young people on site.  Please ensure that everyone treats all facilities, classrooms and outdoor space with respect.  

Please take note the arrangements we have made with the school and ensure that they are followed: 

We have use of the Solefields car park, which is in Solefields Road, opposite the entrance to the school. 
Once parked, there is an underpass to walk across to the school buildings and Block D which is where our tournament and parents area will be.  

This is the only area in the school complex that we can use to park cars. Please do not use any other spaces. KJCA will have parking attendants on hand to help out and ensure that we are using the correct part of the school grounds.   

Alternatively, there are car parks in Sevenoaks town by the high street and it is a 5-10 minute walk to the school.
 
If coming by public transport, then Sevenoaks train station is about a 15-20 minutes uphill walk to the venue or there are several taxis based at the station. 

In between the chess rounds, please remember that parents and carers have responsibility for their children. 
Primary aged children should not be left alone, unless you have agreed direct responsibility with another adult / parent, and please ensure that you know where they are and that they are playing safely at all times.

The school has also said that there are no football or ball games allowed in the school grounds.
   
We will also have access to a catering area which will be where you can have food and drink  (not allowed in the classrooms).

We look forward to seeing all our young chess players on Sunday

Website update and maintenance - Please check user details

We are working on improving and modernising the KJCA website in the next couple of months.

As part of the updates, we hope to introduce a more streamlined registration process.  However, in order to do this, we will be cleansing the database of all old information and will also delete any young players that are not linked to a parent/carer that has a contactable email address. 

Please can you check that all user registrations on the KJCA website are up to date with the correct parents/carers name, email address and other details.  It is also important to ensure that your children and young players are linked to your account.  

To update you profile:
1.  Login with your registration details
2.  Go to the 'account ' tab in the menu bar
3.  Click on the 'update user profile' under the operations on the right hand side of the page.
4.  Update details as required
5.  To add children who are not linked with your account, choose your child using the drop down at the bottom of the profile page.
6.  Click save and exit

Please check profiles and update as necessary before the 18th of February, as we then start working on the database and improvements to the website. 

This will be followed by an email to all remaining users including further details of improvements and updated terms and conditions.  

Please note: All data that is currently on the KJCA website is what has been entered when registering for our events and coaching days and is in line with our website terms and conditions. 

If you would like help with updating or removing any details, please contact webmaster@kjca.org.
