FANCY ONE ECF GRADED GAME ON A SATURDAY EVENING?
We often have a lot of half point byes on Saturday evening, and if you can't make the whole weekend we wondered whether you might be interested in playing one ECF graded game? not FIDE rated) The time control would be the same, 60 minutes each plus 30 seconds a move throughout, and the game starts at 5.30pm on Saturday 18th April and could go on to 8.30pm.
You would be paired against someone roughly your own strength and play alongside the other players in the congress. It would cost you £8.00, or £14.00 for players who are not already ECF SIlver members (we will upgrade you to Silver if you are already Bronze) or above (you have to be Gold to play in the congress). Email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and I'll pair you up with someone! Or just register right here.
