Notes on the YCA Grading List

 

This printed list is a copy of the list published on the internet in July 2018.  It is the final product of the chessnuts grading system, which will now become an archive.

 

After 17 years I have retired as Yorkshire Grader, and Steve Mann has been elected in my place.   Steve is already an experienced grader and I know that you will join me in wishing him every success.
