1st East Dunbartonshire Congress

The 1st East Dunbartonshire Congress took place in Lennoxtown Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August 2011. East Dunbartonshire Congress

The event had a relaxed atmosphere while simultaneously providing players with a platform for competitive chess. The Kings section had the added bonus of giving players the opportunity to play FIDE-rated games.

Thanks to Peter Woods of Chess Suppliers for providing some great photos of the event.
