Printed Grading List – 2015

July 17th, 2015

The 2014 Chess Scotland AGM and follow up Council meetings discussed cost saving measures with regard to the printing of the Grading List. The online display of grading information has meant that sales of the book have declined sharply in recent years.

This season there will no longer be a printed grading book sent out automatically to all graders, tournament organisers, officials etc. A complimentary copy of the book will however be sent out free of charge in PDF format.

Some players and officials have indicated they would still like to be able to use the printed Grading List. To satisfy these requests we will make a shorter print run of the book but only for copies which have been purchased in advance. That way we minimise printing costs on potentially unsold copies.

If you would like to order a copy of the printed Grading List please buy a copy before August 1 2015 by using the online form here
The charge is £5 and includes postage. The size of the print run will be determined by the number of orders taken by that date. The book will be printed up in early August and posted out to purchasers. There will only be a very limited number of books available for purchase after this date.
