Grading List

Tournament organisers, area graders, CS officials and patron members receive a complimentary copy of the grading list in pdf format.

A smaller print run has been made in recent years to meet requests for a copy of the booklet in hard copy. This will continue as long as the number of pre-ordered copies is sufficiently large to make printing a viable undertaking. There are a few copies available for purchase from the membership page (pdf purchase can be made here too).
