Thanks to all organisers for a great Dundee event as always which was very enjoyable. One thing worth considering slightly "tweaking". Four sections... In order to equalise the numbers in each section as best as possible, perhaps alter the grading band in the challengers slightly at each end.

Morning Robin. Thanks for this - glad you enjoyed it.

We used exactly the same grading bands as last year when the numbers were (Open first) 41, 36, 34, 40 which I would say is as even as you could hope for with a misty crystal ball. So naturally we assumed we would get a similar balance this time, but ... You can't win 'em all. And of course you know what would happen if we changed the levels - Sod's Law would overpopulate the Challengers.

Still, in both years the Open has been a tad fuller than the others so it's something to think about. And we will.

Keith,

Five sections might not be far away! It's such a good event, the Open was stronger than the majority of Scottish congresses and all sections were very competitive.
