Grass Roots Scheme Entering Its Third Year

The new year for the Grass Roots Scheme commenced 1st October 2010 and will run until 30th September 2011. Visually impaired UK members of BCA who participated in one of the three BCA domestic events between 1st October 2009 and 30th September 2010 and who did not receive a BCA grant of £300 or more during the two-year period to 30th September 2010 are entitled to claim one grant of £150 or two grants of £75 towards the cost of entering UK mainstream events, Overseas mainstream or VI events or the chess theme break run by Peter Gibbs. Applications should be made one week or more prior to the event. Retrospective applications are not accepted. Applications should be made to: Gary Wickett, Stan Lovell or Bill Armstrong. All we require of you is that you send your receipts for accommodation or travel to Gill Smith and that you make a brief report of the event and the venue and its suitability for VI players. This should be sent to Bill Armstrong.
