Best Annotated Game Prize
The 4NCL will be offering three
prizes of £50 each for the best annotated
games from the 4NCL 2010/2011 season, and we
should be glad to receive entries for this
I imagine that we will not be presenting trophies and prizes until
the Hinckley Island weekend of 14th-15th January when all the teams
except those in the Northern League will be at the same venue. That
said, we should probably set a deadline so that people who want to enter
can do so while last season is still reasonably fresh in their minds, so
can I suggest that entries be submitted by the end of July please?
Anyone wishing to enter a game should bear the following in mind:
Entries will be judged not only on the standards of the play
exhibited, but on the level of insight, relevance, possibly humour
etc. demonstrated by the annotations.
It is not necessary for the annotator to have been one of the
participants in the game, simply that the game needs to have been
played in the 4NCL during 2010/11.
Entries should be sent in PGN or Chessbase format please to the .

Room Rates 2011-13
- Mike Truran
The new bedroom rates for Barcelo (2011/2012
and 2012/2013) and De Vere (calendar years
2011, 2012 and 2013) are published
Barcelo Hinckley Island have asked me to draw to your attention that
they will be offering special triple and quad BB and DBB rates for
2011/2012 and 2012/2013.
I understand that this will entail three/four separate single beds
(if necessary sofa beds or Z beds) in the room, i.e. nobody will be
expected to share beds. If my maths serves me correctly, this works out
at £21.75 per person (BB) and £34.75 (DBB) per person for a quad room
