Louth Quick-Play Tournament 2019 (6th May)

Message from Keith Palmer

An entry form is available with details of this year's Quick-Play Tournament which takes place on Saturday 29th June. Note that we have a new venue this year, The White Horse Inn on Kenwick Road, and once again we are including a buffet lunch, supplied by the White Horse Inn, in the entry fee. The venue will be closed to the public during the day so we will have no issues with loud music, noisy customers etc; This tournament is now the premier one day event in Lincolnshire and I hope that local chess players give their support to ensure its continued success.
