3 Day Rapid Play Competition 2022

[28 July 2022 - Peter Szabo]

Dear All,

The club opens on the 1st September and we will hold our AGM on the 8th.

From the following week, we are planning to have a 3 day rapid play competition (15th, 22nd and 29th September).

The number of games and groups depend on the number of participants, but we are aiming for the following setup:

  • Two groups (Mayor and Minor)
  • Each day 2 games
  • Time control 20 minutes with 5 seconds increment
  • All games ECF rated
  • Tournament type is to be confirmed

Members can be expected to play between four and six games over the three dates in graded sections (all play all) determined by the number of entrants.

As mentioned, all above can change based on the number of participants and other considerations.
To join all you need is to be a member of our club and have an ECF membership.
(Please note: ECF membership year runs from the 1st September to the 31st of the following August.)

Please let me know if you would like to play before 2nd September.

Kind regards,
Peter Szabo
Metropolitan Club Tournament Controller
