Re: Should the ECF try to organise more chess?

The usual expectation is that the British takes place during the school holiday period. Maybe its time to move forward ....& move away from the rather old fashioned, holding the Championship's during the "Summer Academic Break". So when would you hold the British, or do you do a US style event?

I was opposed to the members representatives proposal on the grounds that it was too restrictive. Generally bronze, silver and gold relate to a certain `type` of player but some members do have to move to a higher category (I'm a case in point here as playing in the rated sections of the British is...
