Alf Schroeder, deceased
I know that some of you will already have been told of this, but I have been asked by Phil Staley of the Bushbury Chess club to inform you that, sadly, Alf Schroeder, a longstanding member and player for the club, died over the holiday period. He was almost certainly the oldest registered regular chess player in the country when he last played a few years ago.
I will inform you of funeral details when I get them. I assume that an obituary of Alf will also become available later.
