Not in the same class as the Blackpool Conference, but I played in the Birmingham Rapidplay, Sunday 15th March. Sutton Coldfield's Henrik Stepanyan won the Open.

I well remember many players awkwardly bump elbows at the start of a game only to forgetfully shake hands at the end.

The congress website says: The date of the next event will be notified when this Covid is under control and hopefully will take place at the The Imperial Hotel Blackpool.

......Lancashire Chess is not updating its website
resulting in little information about Chess Plans in the North West
