The Congress is run by a small team of volunteers from Hertfordshire County Chess Association, none of whom are paid. Entries were a little down on last year but we will still be paying all prize money that we had advertised in our brochure and on our website.

Many thanks to Kidge Elder who is stepping down from the team after five years, the last three as Chief Organiser.

The full list of Prizewinners is available on the Congress website: http://www.hertschesscongress.com/index ... h-congress

*correction: 'have still paid' changed to 'will still be paying'
