GM/IM Lecture Survey

The Boylston Chess Foundation is committed to delivering high quality chess content in many formats. One way to bring chess to the community is to invite GMs and IMs to give a lecture. We normally schedule these in the evenings during the week.

We would like to boost attenance at these events in the future, and hope that people will post comments to answer the following questions:

1. Are evenings during the week best? Or would you be more likely to attend if the lectures were scheduled immediately after a weekend tournament, for example the 3-round quads?

2. What topics would you like to hear GMs/IMs cover?

3. How much would you be willing to pay for an event? Usually they are free for club members, small fee for non-members. If a club member, would you be happy to pay a small fee? Please remember the club must pay these professionals for their time, and we usually take a loss on the events.

4. Would you attend a lecture by other top Boylston Club players, perhaps one of our many masters, for a nominal fee? What subjects might they cover.

Thanks for you response. If you prefer, you can e-mail your answer to the club, or to
