Last Chance Saloon and U11 Congress @ Ponteland
April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The NJCA Last Chance Saloon is an opportunity for children who have not qualified for the Megafinal stage of the UK Chess Challenge to do so. Alongside this, at the same venue and times, we will be hosting a ‘normal’ U11 NJCA Congress.
However, for our Seniors and more experienced U11 children we recommend competing in the Forest Hall Congress that weekend (see http://foresthallchess.org.uk/forest-hall-congress-blitz/) to gain experience of a slightly longer ‘adult’ style tournament.
In both the Last Chance Saloon and U11 Congress there will be 7 short rounds which will be conducted in accordance with the UK Chess Challenge First Round rules (including points adjudication after 25 minutes).
