AGM Motion 5

Speaking only personally, the Scottish and the British graded events, give me something to work towards and look forward to during the year. They are both opportunities, on home soil, to play one game a day events, with longer time controls and prepare for opponents round by round.

I enjoy weekend congresses a lot but the Scottish and British are just a bit special. I am no phychologist or phychiatrist so I don't know why I was so much more disappointed to lose in the last round of the Scottish Under 1500, when within touching distance of first prize, than I was when I lost the last game at the Glasgow Congress, when a win there would have given me the top spot.
