As well as the Newmarket congress the first weekend in June, the EACU has decided to run its first closed individual championships this year, which will be at Whittlesford Memorial Hall, in Whittlesford, on 10 & 11 March 2018.
This will be a normal 5-round Swiss tournament, with three sections (Open, U-170 and U-130), but is only open to “EACU players” - please see the Eligibility and Conditions of Entry section of the entry form for what this means. Grading limits are as at the new January 2018 list which should be published towards the end of January. The winner of the Open section will be the EACU Open Champion, and will qualify for a place in the 2018 British Championship. There will be a trophy for the Champion of each section.
