Training Day Tour 2017-8: Return to Edinburgh

My previous expedition to Edinburgh had gone very well indeed and plans were quickly made for a return trip.

The centre piece of the new expedition was a series of four training courses at the Edinburgh Chess Congress.

Additionally, I was there to talk to as many people as possible to plot further chess development in Scotland and to present some CSC chess boards and sets to the Chess in the Park project and to St. Cuthbert's Church for their new board games club for the homeless.

Everbody was very positive and extremely friendly. We are now looking to create a full training day in Glasgow as part of the 2018-9 tour, which will help to build on our success.

All great family fun! This project could - and should - be replicated all across the UK

Thank you, Edinburgh. I will return!
