The British Chess Championships are being held between 19 July - 2nd August in Aberystwyth University. The Welsh Chess Union has been offered three places for this year's championships. The people selected will still have to pay the entry fee of £250. If you are interested in playing please could you contact me, Tom Brown via the international director's email address. The places will be offered based on rating and whether the player is still qualified as a junior. The tournament is very strong so at a minimum a Welsh rating of 2000 is anticpated to be required (1800 for juniors.)
If there is sufficient demand for places a selection meeting will be held after the Welsh Championships in April. Could all those interested please let me know by 1/4/14.
