Annual Best Game Prize

Graham Lilley has concluded his deliberations as judge of the 2017 competition and the outcome will be made known at the 2018 AGM. As we eagerly await that announcement and the presentation of the pink diamond crystal paperweight, we are delighted to declare the 2018 competition open! Reigning champion, Bill Armstrong, has kindly agreed to judge this year’s event, which as always will be run in memory of David Hodgkins.

The competition is open to all members and associate members in the British Isles and covers over the board and correspondence games which must have been played in a BCA event or for a BCA team during the year. The aim is to consider games at all levels in the BCA, whatever the grade of the players.

You may send games to any committee member in the format of your choice. Eligible games that are published in the Gazette during 2018 will automatically be included in the competition. Good luck to one and all!
