29-30 November Hampstead Under 2200 PLUS announcing an EXTRA Christmas event!

As you probably know, the next Congress is on 29-30 November.  We are quickly filling up, so get your entry in SOON!

Here is a list of entries for the November tournament.

In December we have the usual Under 2200 weekend congress at Henderson Court on 20-21 December.  

At a nearby venue, Heathside School in Heath Street (not very far away from the tube - did you know that Hampstead Underground used to be called Heath Street?), I am running an International 2200+ tournament from 15-23 December.  At that venue we have decided to host an extra event during the week of Monday 15 - Friday 19 December - the games are from 11am to 2pm daily, there are five rounds and the time control is the usual all in 60 minutes plus 30 seconds a move. Interested?  Here is the link.
