It is hoped that it will be possible to run the Scarborough Congress this year on the weekend of 29-31 October.

The Centre is planning to re-open from July so the Spa Centre itself should be available by the planned dates.
There is obviously still doubt about what the Covid situation will be then, so players may wish to exercise caution with regard to booking accommodation.

Entry forms are normally available at around this time. However, we do not intend to distribute entry forms until there is a bit more certainty about the numbers that will be able to take part.
Good news.
I can see accommodation in Scarborough being quite pricy though.
Also events in nearby Whitby.

Thanks Paul - that looks really interesting! Having said that, I must confess that I've always wanted to play the Scarborough tournament, but it always clashes with something else.

It's around the same time as Guernsey. Any news on plans for that?

That's the one that clashes! Last I heard, they were cautiously awaiting news, but I haven't had any contact with organizers there for some time.

Come to sunny Scarborough Kevin. Not as sunny as Blackpool though.

Scarborough has the big advantage of being in Yorkshire.
