The third date of this year's CSC training day tour took me to Manchester yesterday for a very interesting and stimulating day of chess.
The tour has already visited London and Edinburgh, both of which proved popular with the delegates, and this time we had 14 people in attendance, with an excellent blend of teachers, TAs and established chess players.
I was very pleased to be able to work alongside David Hardy, Manchester's own Regional Organiser, who is one of the hardest-working people I have ever known.
As usual, we crammed as much as were possible could into the day and the group was eager to discuss and debate many topics which all made for an excellent day.
Utilising Ashton's San Rocco was a masterstroke, giving everyone great facilities, plenty of space, lots of coffee and a very impressive lunch.
We conclude with a selection of captured moments from our busy day.
Thank you, everyone!
