Congress details have been on our website calendar page for some time.
We have reserved some rooms at the venue hotel, and just one single room is left from our allocation, as of a few minutes ago! This will be released in the next few days.
If you wish to book at the venue, you should do so right away. The Hotel telephone number is: 01743 499955 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are only a few hotels in the town centre (plenty further out) and wherever you choose to stay, it will probably pay to plan ahead.
As to the tournament itself, the early bird discount runs up to 31st January.
Any questions to email@example.com
