Worth it for the BBQ alone in my view.

But also a very pleasant atmosphere and great surroundings.
Absolutely what a chess congress should be.

Thank you to the 113 players who supported the Congress; to Worth Abbey for hosting the event; and to Mike Forster, Sue Howell, Carol Graham & Peter Finn for running the event.

Special mention to the Sussex Junior Chess catering team who provided an excellent service over the weekend, including the sell-out BBQ!

See you in July 2015.
