Message from the Brilliant organiser - Brendan Jamison

"Thank you to all 30 players who participated in the outdoor events during September and October. We had so much fun playing on real chess boards again.

It was also wonderful to receive so much press coverage from our tournaments at Whitehead Railway Museum, Bangor Marina and Groomsport Harbour. Other highlights included the Pump House at Titanic Quarter and the two tournaments held at Stormont Estate.
