Announcement of date change for 2018 North Wales Congress (Venue Cymru, Llandudno)

The date of the 2018 congress has been brought forward a week and will now take place Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June.
The change is necessary because Llandudno will be hosting Armed Forces Day 2018 on the weekend we had originally booked. This major national event is expected to attract around 200,000 visitors, which would make accommodation both hard to find and unusually expensive and travel a bit problematic. Also, Venue Cymru is now no longer available (we understand it will be closed for security reasons).
Apologies for any inconvenience to players who have already made plans. Anyone who has already booked accommodation should have no difficulty changing their booking, as hotels will expect to be able to re-fill any cancellations very easily that weekend.
For anyone planning to extend their stay longer than the chess weekend to enjoy some holiday time in North Wales, do bear in mind that while Armed Forces Day itself is on Saturday 30th June, celebrations begin the week before (Monday 25th), so you may wish to book early or avoid that particular week.

The amended Entry Form is now available on the Calendar page.
