9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We have changed the training platform to DISCORD as it is an easier and more user-friendly platform to work with and the platform can handle the server load of the number of players that we will be adding to the classes at a time. ONLY selected players will be allowed to attend the training.
This is also a free platform to join unlike Zoom where the region would need to spend an additional couple of thousands on licences.
Steps to follow before Thursday:
1)Open a Discord account: https://discord.com/
Discord is the easiest way to talk over voice, video, and text. Talk, chat, hang out, and stay close with your friends and communities.
2) join the Tshwane Chess Server https://discord.gg/DVNwjfBE
3) Complete the Username Registration Form so that we can assign your to the correct Voice Channel: https://www.cognitoforms.com/GautengNorthChess/TshwaneChessDiscordTeamUsernameRegistration
