54th Cotswold Congress

Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Monday 27th May 2024

King's School, Pitt Street, Gloucester, GL1 2BG

 

Every so often, notices of impending congresses are received from places significantly distant from Yorkshire.  The latest is the 6-round 2024 Cotswold Congress being held in Gloucester over the bank-holiday weekend of Sat. 25th to Mon. 27th May with three sections:

Open

open to all

Major

for players rated below 1860

Minor

for players rated below 1635

 

Quite how many Yorkshire-based congress-players would be interested is a moot point, though it is quite surprising how far afield players are prepared to travel for a weekend’s chess, so . . . . .
