The Executive Committee continues to work to maximise the number of games played by BCCA members which are ICCF rated while developing our own BCCA ratings list.
We can now confirm that we expect all William Mason events to be rated in the 2022/23 season and will shortly be seeking confirmation of ratings for the 2022/23 Medal events.
For more detail, please see: BCCA Ratings.
Congratulations are in order for Jonathan Powell who won Trio No 234 with three wins and a draw for a fine score of 3½/4.
