    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.

    Shropshire
    Hinstock
    21 September 2013

    Numbers were up on last year, likely due to Catherine's homemade lunches. As an experiment, they had a formal game review session at tiered levels, between rounds two and three, and most players chose to attend, enjoy and debate. The schedule accommodated this with the main time preserved, but byoyomi made more aggressive.

    Toby Manning was again the overall winner.
