It would be fantastic if our veteran players can support this popular tournament in the year that England are the organising federation. Players of different playing strengths will enter from all over the world and every year there seems to be a record entry. Ian Pheby will be the tournament organiser and EFCC would like to thank him for all his efforts and him volunteering to devote the considerable time needed to make this tournament happen.
