The 11th
JESSIE GILBERT
Celebration International Chess Festival

With the permission & support of Jessie's family
LIST OF EVENT BOOKINGS

JUNIOR FIDE RATED RAPID PLAY ROUND ROBINS
at
84-90 Chipstead Valley Road, Coulsdon, Surrey. CR5 3BA
Advanced online booking required - YOU CANNOT TURN UP ON THE DAY AND EXPECT THERE TO BE SPACES

REGULATION OF PLACES - VERY IMPORTANT TO TAKE ON BOARD

As we get close to the events, we will specify who can and cannot book.  Please see the notes under the dates below.  As we need exactly 7 or 8 players in every section (and this is difficult to regulate), we will (with a few days left) close events once we have the required number of players - but will generate a waiting list, which WILL result in an extra event if enough players contact us in time.  Please don't wait until the last minute to register with us!

HOW THE TOURNAMENTS WORK

You enter (you can register for as many of the 4 days as you want) - we place you in groups of 7 or 8 players (based on ability) and you play the other players in your group during the course of the day (we will, if necessary, introduce a player or 2 (maybe adults) from CCF - to ensure that we have the required number of FIDE Rated players).  Colours will be decided by a pre-event draw.  As long as all the matches in the round robin get played, EVERY match is counted for FIDE Rating (including matches against un-rated players), thus even with only 3 rated players out of 8, everyone should go home with 7 rated games played.  As long as your calculated rating comes out above 1000, you should have a Rapid Play FIDE Rating for the start of September.

COST, TIMINGS, ETC
18  Entry Fee - 1st Prize 30, Runner Up 15 in each group of 8.  First game at 10am.  Estimated Finish 6pm.  ALL players must be English Chess Federation Silver members (or better) - but if you register for the September 2018 - August 2019 season in August, you can have August 2018 free!  And the new cost will be just 5 for the season.
PLEASE BE AWARE
This event will be running alongside (and in the same room(s) as) tournaments involving adults.  This means that (although we have no reason to believe that anyone would be a danger) we cannot vouch for the players who enter the competitions.  In addition, we can only accept players for these events who FULLY understand the need to be extra-quiet in the playing hall (please do not enter children who might be a risk in keeping absolute silence) - and CCF must be able to reserve the right to remove anyone (without refund) from the tournament (even after the start) who cannot work to this need.
TUESDAY 21 AUGUST WEDNESDAY 22 AUGUST THURSDAY 23 AUGUST FRIDAY 24 AUGUST

The 1st event is now full.  Anyone interested should email CCF and request to be listed as such - and if we have enough come forward we will run a 2nd section.
