31st Nottingham Chess Congress

The 2006 Nottingham Congress was held at Bramcote Hills Sport and Community College, Nottingham, on 22–23 April. Tony Wright and Neil Graham worked heroically, along with the Lakhani family, Tony’s family and Michael Barnes (playing and organising at the same time), to ensure that everything ran smoothly.
