27th to Sunday 29th October at the Crowne Plaza (formerly Holiday Inn) in Solihull.
This will consist of two five round Swiss tournaments – an Open Tournament and a Challengers Tournament for those whose grade or estimated grade is 100 or below. Both tournaments are open to blind and partially sighted players and to associate members of the BCA. The hotel is conveniently located a short taxi ride from Solihull Railway Station, and is also convenient for Birmingham International Airport. It has extensive grounds and is adjacent to Solihull's indoor shopping centre.
As the hotel has changed hands prices have increased, but we are of course doing our best to minimise the effect of this to members. The cost for dinner, bed and breakfast for the Friday and Saturday nights is £37 per person per night for BCA members and associate members in a shared room and £39 per person per night in a single room. The cost for non-members and for those staying the Sunday night will be £56 per person per night sharing and £58 per person per night single.
Payment for all accommodation (including Sunday if required), together with the £10 entry fee should be sent to the Treasurer, Gill Smith (see list of BCA Officers for contact details). The closing date for entries is 8th September 2017.
