2020 Chess Championships 2017/18!
#8
It was a good event last year, with a good mix of playing levels. There were some super strong teams. There was one team with a 2300 FM on their bottom board, and other similarly strong teams. From memory I recall there were individual prizes for each board and grading prizes maybe I think. The venue/equipment were all very high standard. The reason it was probably not better supported by Scottish clubs was the date got moved from a sensible date to a October holiday date (because of chess politics). I had to cancel my clubs entry because of that and played for my 2nd club instead.

The only downside was that it was not graded, a few non-uni team people who came along said this. Why is the grading subject to entries this time around? It really should be graded and guaranteed as such, people like to play for grading points (even in allegro), and it creates a historical record of all the games. If it is not graded again, it will possibly put off entries (would be a shame), and it would detract from the event. It is probably already on the back foot with the late start.

If I continue to be picky  Undecided a Sunday would have been better than a Saturday, as there is more available parking, and cheaper too.
