WCCF Member Organisations Team Tournament IV

Austin Lockwood  Tuesday, October 1, 2019

This tournament has now finished; congratulations to BCCA Lasker, SchemingMind B and BCCA Steinitz for taking first, second and third respectively.

The Member Organisation Team Tournament was fully funded by WCCF as a way to develop CC in Wales and to promote the activities of our affiliated organisations to Welsh players by giving free entries; unfortunately only five Welsh players entered the last tournament out of forty players altogether, and under the circumstances the WCCF Executive Committee decided that it was inappropriate to use WCCF funds to subsidise tournaments played by players of other national federations.

WCCF are still keen to continue to promote our partner organisations; any suggestions for the continuation of this event would be welcomed at the AGM.
