BCA Members in Mainstream Tournaments
To encourage more BCA members to enter mainstream tournaments and, if eligible, claim their grant under the Congress Support Scheme, we thought you’d like to know who’s been playing where. Here are a few recent congresses where BCA Members have played.
Leek Rapidplay 14th June 2015: Bill Armstrong finished joint second in the U145 section on a score of 5 points from 6, only having lost to the eventual winner.
Bournemouth Congress 19th - 21st June 2015: Owen Phillips played in the Open, Ian Blencowe in the Intermediate and Voldi Gailans in the Minor.
Sheffield Congress 26th - 28th June: Chris Ross finished 3rd in the Open on 4 out of 5. Norman Wragg and Mark Kirkham played in the Intermediate, with Mark finishing joint third on 4 out of 5.
No doubt there were others too! If you take part in a mainstream tournament from July 2015 onwards, please let me know so your participation can be mentioned in this article in the November issue. Don’t worry if you have a bad tournament; scores will only be published in the Gazette if you finish in third place or higher.
