I would be interested in hearing from people who are keen in writing articles aimed at our younger chess players.

I look forward to seeing many of you at Worcester tomorrow. I can be easily identified as the opponent writing down my move......with a giant pencil!

Re: ECF County Championships 2011

How much work would it be to only FIDE rate ECF members? Would that fit within the rules?
