    Hi everyone,

    Unfortunately Max has let me know he has a flight o/s to play chess on the Sunday of the Best in the West, so he apologizes profusely but has to miss this year...

    I will start to put players in some ratings order soon - there are many who are probables and we hope to get close to 100 players for our slightly larger new venue. We are working hard on more prizes and sponsorship!
