First round 27th June. Please enter by email. Entries may be accepted on the night... The fewer people I have to put into the Vega files on the night, the sooner we can start round 1!
Please note the change of Schedule; I have altered the date of round 3 to avoid the George Trundle event as many of our players are taking part, along with myself and Lynn Wei as arbiters.

RAPID 2nd Leg, June 2018
Now completed - FM Ben Hague won with 6/6.
