I don't think that my posting, which was intended to be helpful (especially as nobody on this Forum had previously pointed out that the OTB championships are going ahead) deserved the rude put-down which Mr Sedgwick just delivered, and I invite others to back me up on this.
I apologise for causing offence. I have edited my post.

Thanks Simon but generally I don't include local and weekend events in my calendar.
Only ones of 7 or more rounds that people might actually consider travelling to.

There are usually some local Austrian, Croatian and other senior events to be found on chess-results.com if you search for "Senior".
