24-02-2017 Open BCA brits schaakkampioenschap voor visueel beperkten
periode: zaterdag 27 mei - zaterdag 3 junie 2017
Open BCA British Championship
This will be held at The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate. It will be a seven round event, one round each day, which will be open to all visually impaired chess players both from the UK and overseas. It will also be open to all associate members of the BCA. The British Champion will be the highest placed UK visually impaired player. Depending on the entry, there may also be a Challengers event in addition to the main championship.
We are pleased to be returning to this hotel with its excellent facilities. It has proved popular on previous occasions for our weekend tournaments, and we feel it will be very suitable for our week long event. The hotel is located close to the town centre and a short taxi ride from Harrogate Railway Station. Harrogate is conveniently located for air travel being about 14 miles from Leeds-Bradford airport.
The cost to members and associate members who have joined the BCA on or before 31st March 2017 will be £270 per person for the week, for dinner, bed and breakfast regardless of room type. The entry fee will be £10. Additional nights accommodation at the beginning or end of the tournament can be arranged – contact me for the cost of this or the cost to non-BCA members.
Payment for entry and all accommodation should be sent to the Treasurer, Gill Smith by the closing date of 31st March 2017.
In addition to the chess, we are planning a series of social events which we hope will appeal to members and associate members. So far we’ve had some good ideas and offers of help with these. However, we would welcome any further suggestions or offers of help so that we can put on an event which is enjoyable and successful both on and off the chess board.
