The annual Bury St Edmunds Junior Chess Congress will take place this season on Sunday 5 March 2017. It will be held at the usual venue, Moreton Hall Community Centre, where there will be a maximum capacity of 100 entrants.
There will be four sections, but not the same as in previous years. For 2017 the sections will be as follows:
The Open section will be for anyone aged 11 and over as at the start of the current school year. The Novices section is for anyone who has never played in a chess tournament before. They must be aged 10 or younger.
Entry forms will be available soon and will be sent to local schools and clubs.
