Entries now being taken for 2013/14 British Correspondence Chess Championships

The 2013/14 season is about to begin for the British Correspondence Chess Championship, the British Veterans Championship and the British Ladies Championship. The championships are only open to full members of the British Federation for Correspondence Chess (BFCC) and its member organisations who were born or are currently residing in the United Kingdom, a Crown Dependency or a British Overseas Territory. There are Championship, Candidiates and Reserves Sections.

This has been held annually since 1921 and is now played exclusively as a webserver event. Titled players above certain ratings can get into the Championship Section. Please see the BFCC website for further details which are too numerous to list here : –http://bfcc-online.org.uk/bccc-bccc/bccc-rules 

Here is a game won by Mark Eldridge, who is the British Team Captain for International Friendly Matches, against Arthur Reed in last years Championship. I would be eligible for both the Individual and Veterans, but perhaps I should not enter to give them all a chance……..!
