I am organising the following event, designed for unrated players who would like to earn a FIDE rating:
Venue: Hill & Cakemore Liberal Club, 87 Nimmings Road, Halesowen B62 9JG
Weekend 1 (Friday 9 - Sunday 11 November):
Friday: 1 - 1900
Saturday: 2 - 1000, 3 - 1500
Sunday: 4 - 1000, 5 - 1500
Weekend 2 (Saturday 17 - Sunday 18 November):
Saturday: 6 - 1000, 7 - 1500
Sunday: 8 - 1000, 9 - 1500
Time control: 4 hour session. 90 minutes + 30 seconds per move.
Enough rated players for one section to be run are already confirmed. However, the aim is to run two sections, so there are still plenty of spots available.
The event is an All-Play-All - you must play in all rounds. You can't withdraw or take byes. The games will all be FIDE-rated and ECF-graded. The entry fee is Â£30 for unrated players, and Â£0 for rated players. All England-registered players must be ECF Gold members.
If you would like to play in this event, send me a private message via this forum, or send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
