All Under One Roof!

In this feature I include information about events where the accommodation and the chess playing area are all under one roof. Please note: Castle Chess and Spectrum chess are dealt with separately by Gary Wickett.

An Event with a Difference! First Jorvic Chess Congress. Wednesday 1st to Friday 3rd September 2010. Wheatlands Lodge Hotel, York. A six-round tournament with games being played from 10:30am to 12:30pm and 2pm to 4pm each of the three days, two hour playing sessions with one hour for each player. Another innovation is the opportunity to analyse your games with an ECF accredited coach. All included in the entry fee of £35.

Accommodation is available at Wheatlands Lodge Hotel, 75/85 Scarcroft Road, York YO24 1DD, tel: 01904 654318, email: Accommodation should be booked direct with the hotel. Quote: Chess Event.

The bed and breakfast rates are: Single £40 per night and sharing £35 per night. Dinner is available at £12.50.

Cheques for the entry of £35 should be made out to Jorvic Chess and sent to: Peter Cloudsdale.
