As of today, there are exactly four weeks to go before the start of the 33rd Bury St Edmunds Congress. 19 years ago, some people looked a lot younger. Do you recognise anyone in the photo (you can click on the photo to enlarge it)?
So far, 63 people have entered this year’s Congress. Of these, only 17 are from Suffolk-based clubs. Clearly, Suffolk’s top players prefer to wait to the last minute before entering, because both the Open and Major sections have just one Suffolk entrant.
There is a ceiling of 172 entrants in the Apex (the number of entrants in 2010). Last year there were 162 entrants, the second-highest in recent years.
Members of the Bury St Edmunds club have been asked to assist with setting up, from 07.30 on Saturday morning (24 October).
