13th Weald Chess Congress Results – July 13th-14th 2019

Thanks to Copthorne Prep School for the spacious venue and to our team of volunteers:

  • Set Up & Clear Down – Tom, Scott and Laura Borland, Gary McCulloch, Karen Meakings, Trevor Norton and Jonathan Tuck
  • Catering & BBQ – Keith Martin, Debbie Steinhuis, Teresa & Keith Blades, Stella Coleman and Claire Ralph
  • Tournament team –  Mike Forster, Chris & Sue Howell, and Catherine & Peter Finn
  • Thanks to all the senior players who supported the juniors by analysing with them after their games
  • Thanks to the parents who helped us clear away the playing hall

Traditionally the Weald Congress features parents and their children competing – this year was no exception with 7 parent-and-child combinations.

New for this year we had a congress cat who strolled in regularly to check on the play.

As a non-profit making event we gratefully acknowledge the kind donations received from so many competitors. Any surplus funds will be used to support junior chess in Sussex.

Results Summary

Prizewinners will be contacted in the next few days. Please be aware our staff are all volunteers who have full time jobs, but if you have not heard from us by Friday 19th July please get in touch.
