The 46th Scarborough Chess Congress
This is booked for 27th - 29th October 2023 at the Spa Complex.
Full details will be released at the forthcoming Blackpool Conference in February.
It is likely to follow last years format (5 sections) but with the Major also becoming FIDE rated. Prize money and entry fees will probably remain the same as last year but there'll be a longer lunch break. We're also looking to introduce a Saturday junior tournament which will be held in the Prominade Room at the Spa.
Our aim is to exceed 400 entries. If this can be achieved then we'll introduce a sixth section at our 47th Congress.
The 45th Scarborough Chess Congress
Our 45th congress has now finished.
We very much hope that on the whole everyone enjoyed the tournament. We had a very good turn out with well over 300 entries and with such a high intake there is inevitably going to be the odd problem. Our initial issues were making space for everyone. A more thorough report on the weekend will follow but its the end of the month so submitting results for rating is our current priority. So if you've won prizes, well done but bear with us.
