24th Windermere Chess Theme Week 2017

The booking is from Saturday, 28th January 2017 to Saturday, 4th February 2017. The tariff is £59 per person per day i.e. £413 for the week. The non-returnable deposit of £50 is payable prior to 1st October 2016 in order to obtain the 10% early-bird discount of £41.30 giving a final figure of £371.70. Sadly, even if a person is an RNIB member there is no longer an entitlement to a further 10% reduction of this latter figure. In order to make the booking secure, the residue after the payment of the deposit, is due one month before the 28th January 2017. The bookings include dinner, bed and breakfast and soup and sandwich lunch each day. There is one evening of light entertainment and outings are arranged by the hotel. Bookings should be made direct with the hotel whose telephone number is 015394 45801. Please note that the Windermere Manor Hotel does not allow refunds so everyone booking is strongly advised to take our insurance.

Editor’s Note: Don’t forget that members and associate members who act as trainers or who are trainees at the chess theme breaks run by Peter and Celia Gibbs will receive a £50 grant from BCA after the event.
