Castle Chess and Spectrum Chess

Gary had email problems so couldn’t send in an updated entry this time round. I’ve therefore repeated details of the one event still relevant from the May gazette.

25th -26th September the Portsmouth Congress, the Hilton Hotel, Eastern Road, Farlington, Portsmouth, PO6 1UN. This is a Spectrum Chess event, run by Norman Went and his wife Yelena. Although the Portsmouth Congress traditionally is a six rounds Swiss Tournament, this year it will only be five rounds. There are three sections: Premier (grade 200 and below), Major (grade 160 and below), Minor (grade 120 and below).

For more information and to order an entry form please contact Norman Went or visit

As Congress Coordinator for the BCA, if anybody would like to register their bookings for mainstream congresses, including overseas congresses (both mainstream and VI congresses), or if you would like to inquire about BCA attendance of any congress, please do not hesitate to contact me.
