This was the first competitive chess match played on SchemingMind. Atherton is the nearest chess club to the home of the site's web master and a challenge was issued by the site and accepted by the club. At the time there were less than one hundred members of the site (even after all the Atherton team had joined!), but we still managed to put a reasonable team together to take on a group of serious 'over the boarders'. Atherton CC won the match by a clear nine points, but many of their members carried on as members of SchemingMind afterwards.
