Some Past Players' Comments

 
Thoroughly enjoyed this weekend... this has got to be a favourite of mine. No changes required, although a football points system might stop people from playing for draws which would be interesting.

I really enjoyed this year's congress as indeed I do every year.
2019 Open
 
A very nice event to attend, well organised. Well done. The same again for 2020 please. Would be nice to have the tournament FIDED rated.
