The South London teaching day and tournament went ahead today with 24 students and 3 teachers - Andrew Kay, Tim Hunt, and Francis Roads, to whom we are very grateful that they gave up their time for us. Students were split into groups of similar strength and spent some time with each of the teachers in the morning.

In the afternoon was a three round tournament. Students were again split into groups, each of which played a Swiss-style tournament with handicap equal to grade difference.

    East Midlands
    Thorpe Astley Community Centre
    12 October 2013

    Though the number of attendees was down, the players at the East Midlands Tournament liked the new venue of the Thorpe Astley Community Centre. This is a new wood-clad building in a suburb to the west of Leicester, just in the shadow of Leicester Forest East motorway services. Despite the pouring rain, you could watch the dog-walkers in the surrounding playing fields through the glass wall.

    The return of the bookshop was appreciated by the players, and the organiser's thanks go to Roger Huyshe. Also the players' thanks go to the organiser, Peter Fisher, for organising efficiently and getting the prize-giving ready 45 minutes earlier than planned.

    The winner's prize went to Yuanbo Zhang (4d Nottingham) and the others on three wins were Lucas Meurin (3k Birmingham), Richard Leedham-Green (4k Lincoln) and Andrew Russell (4k Birmingham).
