The BFCC are launching a new British Webserver Team Championship for 4-man teams. This will effectively be a mini-version of the very successful ICCF Champions League. Each player will probably play 6 games (three white, three black) although this is flexible.
Any group of 4 friends can get together to enter a team but the BCCA will make it easy for you and we will put together as many teams as possible from people interested in playing. The normal Entry Fee is £20 per team (£5 per player) but the BCCA will cover half the
cost if the teams enter under the BCCA banner so it will only cost £2.50 per player – a bargain!
I am hoping to swamp this new competition with BCCA teams – as many as possible!
For full details see:- http://www.bfcc-online.org.uk/british-webserver-team-tournament
If you wish to play, please send a cheque for £2.50 (payable to “BCCA”) to Neil Limbert (address inside the front coverof the magazine)
or pay online directly to BCCA’s new PayPal account. Please use the button below and quote your BCCA membership number in the ‘Special Instructions’ field.
Tension is building in the 5th Webserver Final; Mark Eldridge is still leading with a score of 4.5 followed by Terry Taylor in 2nd place. Antony Balshaw, the current champion, is also on the move with a win against Terry.
In the 6th Webserver Tournament there has been a rush of results with all Group winners now being decided:-
Terry Taylor has won Preliminary Group 21 with a score of 8/10 and Ian Mason has taken 2nd place scoring 6/10.
Allan Gardner is the winner in Preliminary Group 22 with a superb score of 9.5/10, Peter Hurse is in second place with a score of 8/10.
In Group 23 Mark Slupski has won with Peter Tibbert in second place.
John Dunn has won Group 24 with a score of 9.5/10; Alex Tupper and David Howell are contesting 2nd place in what is proving to be a real cliff hanger.
Les Ellis has won Group 25 with a score of 8.5/10 followed by Eugene Raby on 8/10
Congratulations to all players who have qualified for the 6th Webserver Final due to start in September and thank you to everybody else for contributing to what was a close fought and action packed competition.
