Sat 12th - 6 places left in the Premier, 20 between Major & Minor

From Lindores Abbey Distillery:

“The items are available to look at on the Lindores Abbey Distillery website - - under 'SHOP'.
However, we are reducing the price of the merchandise for Dundee Congress as follows:
Chess Poster was £5.00.               Now £1
Chess Blade Pen was £6.50.         Now £3
Chess Notebook was £5.00          Now £3
Chess Travel Mug was £10.           Now £4
Chess T-shirt was £20.                  Now £7
Chess Baseball Cap was £10.        Now £5

One other point is that I can't guarantee that I will have means to take card payments. Cash would be preferable”

As of 17:30 today there are 5 places left in the Premier and 4 between Major and Minor. Online entry will be closed this evening.

It's Thursday evening and the latest count gives us an entry of 142, four more than last year. We still have room for a few late entries if they are made sharpish.
