Tournament reminders

There are two tournaments taking place next weekend, both within easy reach for Suffolk players.

The Herts 64th Annual Congress is being held at the County Hall in Hertford.   This is a five round tournament, with Open, u170, u140 and u110 sections.   There will be three rounds on Saturday (7 November) and two rounds on Sunday.   You can enter online, or email the organiser, Kidge Elder.

As of today’s date, 72 players have entered (the organisers are hoping for 150 by next weekend).   The only Suffolk players to have entered so far are Graham Moore (Open) and David Wood (Minor).   Closing date/time for online entries is 17.00 on Friday.

The Norfolk Rapidplay takes place on Sunday 8 November, at the City of Norwich School.   There are sections for Open, u160, u120 and u100, as well as separate Junior sections for Under 13s, Under 10s and Under 8s (ages as at 31/8/2015).

Stephen Orton is the tournament organiser (01603 451572).   Entries to be received by Thursday.


The Junior 4NCL, planned for the weekend of 21/22 November, has had to be cancelled, negotiations with the hotel (near Reading) having fallen through.   A team from the Bury Knights had planned to enter.   The remaining two weekends for the Junior 4NCL will now be 9/10 January and 12/13 March 2016.

  1. Just a small amendment – the Norfolk Rapidplay is in Feb 2016 (keep it free in your diary!) – this tournament is hosted by the Norfolk & Norwich Chess Club and it is hoped for a good turnout…
