BCA Members in Mainstream Tournaments

As reported above, BCA members have participated in the Colin Crouch Celebration Chess Congress and the National Club Championships. In addition, two BCA members played in the Sheffield Congress 24th – 26th June. Mark Kirkham competed in the Major section and Norman Wragg took part in the Intermediate section where he scored 3.5 from five and won a share of a grading prize. Well done Mr Chairman!

Please don’t forget to let me know if you’ve played in a mainstream event and would like a mention here. (Also, visually impaired UK resident members should remember to claim a grant under the BCA Congress Support Scheme if eligible. Contact Mark Kirkham for details.) Don’t worry if you had a bad tournament; scores will only be published in the Gazette if you win a prize. I look forward to hearing from you!
