Feel free to either email Ed Goodwin or message myself, for any queries about the event!

Some of you may know Ed, as the Chief Organiser of the 28th Leamington Rapidplay 2017, and myself, as an ECF Arbiter in the Midlands area (and Vice-Chair of the Coventry and District League). The idea of this event is to attract Juniors of all levels across Coventry, Warwickshire, the Midlands-area, and beyond to play more chess, so we've made the entry fee as generous as possible!
