Please make club mates and friends aware and let’s get a good turnout for this enjoyable event! All proceeds after venue hire and prizes will go to the Northumberland Chess Association. Please note: If you would like to play, but your club is not affiliated to Northumberland Chess Association (and you live outside the catchment area of Northumberland or Tyne and Wear) you could either affiliate your club to the NCA or join an NCA-affiliated club.  

The downstairs Concert Room at the Forest Hall Social Club is well-ventilated and very large – 300 square metres – and there is ample free car parking either outside the Social Club or outside Aldi, 150 metres away.

Please enter by email to me and pay by bank transfer (details according to the entry form).I will send you a confirmation once your email entry and entry fee have been received.(If you prefer to pay cash on the day, please note there is an extra £2 late fee). I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,Tim Wall
