Some Past Players' Comments

 
The whole Congress was excellent and very enjoyable. I would be very much less likely to enter if there were three games on the Saturday rather than as it is now.

I found all the controllers/arbiters and organisers of the tournament extremely helpful but would particularly like to mention Ken Alexander for arranging lifts for players caught out by rail engineering works.
