News for juniors

Welcome to the July/August edition of our newsletter. We want to spread news of chess events for juniors in the region, so feel free to forward to friends and family to subscribe. Summer is a quiet period for local events, though some of you may have qualified for the UK Chess Challenge Gigafinal, the Midlands Gigafinal is again in Solihull in July.
