I was rather thinking this might attract more players from the Staffs, Shropshire, Merseyside and Manchester/Stockport league regions.
I know it already has an extended interest beyond these boundaries.

It seems likely that it's clashing with some other local event because the hotel was fully booked on the Saturday night at least 2 months ago. I would probably have played if I'd been able to get a room.

The Congress had a special deal on offer, so it's at least possible that rooms were withdrawn from the usual booking sites. That said, they only had Friday when speaking directly to the hotel a couple of weeks ago.

There are plenty of hotels and B&Bs in the area around Crewe.

But if you can't stay at the hotel where it's being played, with the convenience of being able to go back to your room between games, the event loses it's attractiveness.
