Revised schedule for Major & Minor

There is important information for participants in the Major and Minor
tournaments at this year’s Northumbria Masters Congress.

These 2 tournaments will now take place over seven rounds, on three
and a half days (Friday 26 August to Monday 29 August), not
the nine rounds over four and a half days originally planned.

This is to help players avoid clashes with work or school
commitments on Tuesday 30th August.

The revised Round times for the Major and Minor tournaments are as follows:

Round 1 Fri 26 August, 6:30pm
Round 2 Sat 27 August, 10am
Round 3 Sat 27 August, 3pm
Round 4 Sun 28 August, 10am
Round 5 Sun 20 August, 3pm
Round 6 Mon 29 August, 10am
Round 7 Mon 29 August, 3pm
Prizegiving: Mon 29 August, 7:30pm

Please note: The other tournaments – the Masters Open, Challengers and
GM and IM title norm tournaments – will go ahead as originally planned,
over nine rounds from 26-30 August.
