Norfolk’s John Charman has requested a plug for his Rapidplay Congress, on Sunday 9 February.
It will take place at the splendid Parkhill Hotel, on the northern outskirts of Lowestoft:
There will be two sections – Championship and Challengers. You can elect to play in the Championship, irrespective of grade; otherwise the sections will be split according to entry. The entry fee, assuming you are an ECF member, is £19, or £14 for Juniors. First prizes of £100 are guaranteed in both sections, with second and third prizes guaranteed too. Free tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided and food will be available in the hotel at lunchtime.

As usual with Rapidplay events, current ECF rapidplay grades will apply where available; otherwise standard-play grades will be used.
The first round starts at 09.45 and prizegiving is scheduled for 18.00.
Contact John Charman if you would like to enter. Closing date is 17.00 on Saturday 8 February and no entries on the day will be allowed.
