Club of the Year and Small Club of the Year 2010
The ECF is looking for submissions from Chess clubs for these two awards. We are seeking details of clubs that stand out from the rest and clubs that their members feel proud to belong to. It's time to get recognition of your club by becoming recipients of the award from the ECF.
The submissions should detail the clubs participation in local leagues and competitions, but also cover such items as how the club encourages membership among groups under represented in the general chess population, the contribution made to chess locally and nationally, the activities organised for juniors and comment on how the club interacts with schools and the local community.
The club(s) selected for the awards will receive a scroll, an engraved plaque and digital clock.
Send your submissions by 29 May 2010 to:
John Wickham, 55 Shakespeare Way, Taverham, Norwich, NR8 6SL

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
