Players are only supervised whilst in the playing hall and therefore Lothian Junior Chess events are not drop off events. Parents/carers are responsible for their children between games and are therefore expected to stay on-site or make a private arrangement for the supervision of their children. For this event there is a spacious waiting area for parents


Catering will not be available at the venue. There are supermarkets and cafes in the local area

Venue specific rules
