Club Database. As attendance is growing it's becoming more difficult to keep the database up to date. Score sheets can be hard to read, there may be missing moves and you may have to go through both players sheets to assemble the complete game. There are usually 10 games or more each week and this can be very time consuming. We greatly appreciate everyone turning in their score sheets. If you enter your games into the computer for analysis it would be helpful if you email your games in PGN Format to Richard to have them included in the club database. If you need a PGN editor this one is free: PGN Editor
