Hi everybody, just a reminder about the Colchester Grand Prix (24th May) entry forms which you need to fill out in order to enter the tournament. The link is Matches | Essex Junior Chess then click on the bottom entry form. It is £12 for all non-members of the ecf, and £10 for silver and gold members. The closing date for entry forms is Wednesday 12th May so make sure to enter before then.
For those of you who don’t know about the Essex Grand Prix events, they are a series of five tournaments throughout Essex. The winner and runner-up in each section will receive a prize whether it be a certificate and trophy for the younger players or money for the older ones. Your scores are totalled up at the end so you can see where you are roughly in your age group. The tournaments are usually in Chelmsford, Basildon, Ilford, Colchester and Saffron Walden. You don’t have to attend every tournament and they are a good way to be recognised by county managers.
Hopefully I will see many of you at Colchester on the 24th of May at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School (C03 9BE)
