2015 British Chess Championships - in our 'back yard'

The 2015 British Chess Championships will take place at the University of Warwick from 25 July to 8 August. (No excuses for not being there).

Apart from the main championship there are many competitions to suit all tastes including ones of varying length and catering for various grading bands. (Information on who can play is shown here). There will also be shopping and other draws for those who are in the vicinity ...

So, if you might want to play or watch then don't book your holiday in that period.

The website for more information is (currently showing mostly information about the 2014 event - this will give you an idea of what you could be in for).  Note that there is a downloadable file about the 2015 tournament covering the accommodation options on campus here.

Maybe this would be a good opportunity to publicise the club? I would be up for making us a banner  to display if Nigel and Bob don't think that is too tacky :-)
