Following on from the South Ayrshire event I have made a few changes to the Ayr Congress Entry Form to incorporate some of the things that I think worked well.

The website has been updated with the revised entry form and information for the congress which takes place during the late May Bank Holiday.

Planning to have all of the following at the Ayr Congress, which is just over one month away -

Incremental time controls.

More live boards.

Junior Saturday event.

Big Screen displays of games.

Commentary and coaching with Andrew Green and Ali Roy.

The Scottish Boys Championship will also be running alongside the congress.
Sounds like fun, will probably be going Smile
Recommended Hamish. I thought it was great last year.

- Nice hotel venue in centre of Ayr.
- Chinese Noodle Bar right outside the venue.
- Lots of cheap B&B accomodation in Ayr, £15 a night for me last year.
- Congress itself is competitive and well organised.

What more could a chess player need from a tournament!

Looking forward to it again next month.

It's not too late just yet to join the bank holiday fun on the Ayrshire coast and there are still a few good priced B&B's available within a short walking distance of the venue, as well as rooms at the Mercure itself.

Try <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- w --> or Ivydean B&B is £30 per night single room with breakfast on one of these sites.

Anyone taking a Friday night bye and arriving on the Saturday morning can grab a room at the Kilkerran Guest House for £25 for the Saturday night, also including breakfast.

Prestwick and Troon also have a wide variety of accommodation and are only a very short train ride from Ayr centre.
Just over 24 hours to enter for the Ayr congress at the weekend.

Unfortunately, I will be unable to accept entries after 10pm tomorrow (Wednesday) night.
Entries for Ayr are now closed.

A complete list of entrants can be found on the CS calendar entry for the congress.

The congress website also has the lists of entrants in sections with details of all byes requested.

If there are any errors or omissions please notify me as soon as possible via the e-mail address given on the Ayr entry form, which is available on the congress website.

Good luck to everyone at the weekend.
