      5. Scottish Junior Chess - feedback from joint committee


      We do not have an agreed document.  I attach the document produced by
      SJC and the covering e-mail it was sent with, the reaction to it by
      CS junior representatives on the joint committee and a copy of a post
      from the CS noticeboard in which Fiona Petrie as SJC Chairperson
      responded to the questions raised at the last Council Meeting.


      I appreciate that people want to know whether there is value in
      coming to discuss the junior issues, and I can only hope that the SJC
      people who attend will be willing to talk.

      Members who have not viewed the Chess Scotland Noticeboard may also
      wish to since there are many posts on the board from a wide range of
      people.


      6. Budget 2005-6, including proposed fees (see two attached
      spreadsheets)

      8. Date of Next Meeting








      Apologies for absence


      Please e-mail me and tell me if you are unable to attend.


      SJC attendance


      We agreed at the last Council Meeting that SJC should be invited to
      the next council meeting.  Since other items may be of interest to
      them, my assumption is that they are welcome to attend for all of the
      meeting.


      Directions to venue:


      Prudential's offices are located at the roundabout at junction 10 on
      the M9. If you are travelling by car, exit the M9 at junction 10. If
      coming from the Edinburgh/Glasgow direction, turn left at the
      roundabout at the end of the slip road and this brings you into the
      Craigforth drive [and is signposted off the roundabout]. If coming
      from the north, the slip road takes you to a different roundabout.
      You should turn left at this roundabout and go along a short link
      road to the other roundabout. Craigforth is the second exit road off
      that second roundabout, and is signposted off it.


      Please stop at the reception building on the right hand side of the
      drive for directions on where to park.





      John Glendinning


      President
