North of the Borders
As always there are events for all strengths. More importantly we have secured the backing of a benefactor and so we should have at least 10 GMs and 10 IMs competing in the International Open.
The event is being held in the historic Trades Hall, Glasgow 7-15 July 2012.
BCM promises good coverage!!
119th Scottish Chess Championships
Over 20 titled players have now entered. See the website (address at bottom) for up to date numbers.
Here are the bed and full Scottish breakfast rates at Strathclyde University. These are within easy walking distance of the venue.
Ensuite single room: £42.00 Vat inclusive
Standard single room: £32.70 Vat inclusive
Perhaps more attractive for some players are Self catering flats with 4 or 6 standard single bedrooms, kitchen, dining and lounge area.
The rates are £17.50 Vat inclusive per person. A 6 person flat will be £105 per person per week or £735.00 per flat per week. They try to keep arrival and departure days to Fridays and Mondays but that is variable. We also offer these self catering flats for a 3 night short break – arrive Friday and depart Monday or a 4 night short break arrive Monday and depart Friday.
