Sincere thanks to Graham White who will again control the event. For the first time at the Closed, we will be trialling the UPU software for displaying results and making pairings
Mike Jay has taken over from Ian Clark - to help Ian focus on his other Dorset Chess Association responsibilities, which includes running the Dorset Open. On behalf of all who have played in the Closed over recent years we are extremely grateful to him for his commitment and contribution to this particular competition.
Mike is also organising the Dorset Rapidplay which takes place on Sunday, 22 March 2015 in Ringwood (please note a week earlier than originally planned)
