Report on the 2009 congress

Preston 22nd Chess Congress 2009 took place from Friday 27th November, to Sunday 29th November. As in previous years, it was a five round swiss system tournament with 4 sections depending on playing strength. The first congress at our new venue at The University Of Central Lancashire (uclan), seemed to go well, despite our initial worries about fitting everyone in. The number of players were over 150 comparable to last years event.
