We are back! In a small way. We are hoping to have four FIDE and ECF rated rapid events in July 10, 17 and August 7 and 14 - ALL SATURDAYS - restricted in so many ways, and very dependent on what happens between now and 21 June. Have you read the goverment roadmap out of lockdown yet? So many hurdles to jump first.
Make sure you sign up to this newsletter and consider upgrading to Premium for only £7.00 a month. I am only going to have 60 players in each event, and places will be offered to Premium subscribers to this newsletter first! If it’s still safe, we will start taking entries from 21 June.
I am also planning some FIDE rated standard events like Hampstead, so watch this space. Until then take part in our virtual weekend tournaments on 13-14 March and 10-11 April, both events are rated by the English Chess Federation.
