British Chess Championships and Notes from League AGM

Check out the latest game from the British Chess Championships.

FM C Storey v GM D Howell

At the League AGM a proposal was put forward to stop issuing any more trophies to Winners or Runners up in the League or KO Cup due to lack of interest in holding the cups or trophies. Mike Johnson has asked for any feedback on this proposal.

It was confirmed that Kenilworth will be entering a team into the First Division next season.  Chelmsley Wood it seems will continue to play in the third division despite defaulting their last 3 matches of the season.

Whilst University continue to cause issues it was felt that excluding them from the Divisional Cup and KO Cup had reduced the number of defaults quite dramatically.

Dave Filer announced that the ECF have increased the Bronze, Silver and Gold memberships. I have copied the new rates below from the ECF Website.
