Yogesh,

On behalf of all at Sussex Junior Chess (we entered 4 teams) please accept our thanks to you and your team for the organising the event so well yesterday.

The venue was great - very spacious with plenty of green grass! - the catering team very welcoming and the playing conditions excellent.

Thank you also goes to the arbiters. The event was a credit to HSCA.

Kind regards,

John

Yogesh,

I can only echo John's words on behalf of Bucks chess.

There was not a thing I could fault and the venue was superb.

To make the event run so smoothly must have taken an immense amount of behind the scenes work too and I would like to thank all the unsung heroes, including the traffic Marshalls!

Hi Yogesh,

On behalf of all the players and parents from Kent Junior Chess, a very big thank you to yourself and your amiable team of volunteers at Herts Junior Chess who made the day a super success! All the boys and girls from Kent had a fun day and enjoyed the sunshine as well!

Thank you also to Habs School for allowing use of their facilities and to Neville Bellinfante, Phil Ehr and all extra helpers.

Kind regards,

Krishna

U18 Anon = J. Manton.

PS Forgot to add earlier that this was indeed a good event - spacious and well lit venue, team rooms for each county, pleasant surroundings (the sunny day helped!) and excellent organisation. Well done to all concerned.
