The previous venue, The Central Hall Westminster, is not available this year due to a clash of dates, so the event will be held at the YCBC (unless an alternative larger venue can be found). This means that numbers will be limited and preentry is essential.
The London Congress continues the tradition of the LMBA Green-Pointed Swiss Weekends. The Swiss Pairs and the Swiss Teams will be single-flighted, with green points awarded in accordance with EBU regulations and prizes for the leading players in both events. All players must be EBU members,
but LMBA membership is not required.
Saturday 16th July: Swiss Pairs starting at 1.00pm. Two sessions with a one-hour interval, finishing at approx. 9.00pm
Sunday 17th July: Swiss Teams starting at 11.30 am Two sessions with a one-hour interval, finishing at approx. 7.30 pm
Entry fee: £25 per person per event. A reduced fee of £48 per person is available to anyone playing in both events over the weekend.
Half price for Under-25s in all events. Pairs wishing to play in the Sunday teams events are invited to request entry, stating clearly which event they wish to play in and giving their EBU master point rankings or NGS grades. Every effort will then be made to pair them up with suitable team-mates.
Advance entry is essential and should be made to Mike Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01732 863283 or in writing to Winterbourne, Swan Lane, Edenbridge, Kent, TN8 6AL.
