The Bristol Chess Congress is growing stronger every year.
The Bristol Summer Congress 2020 (known as the Steve Boniface Memorial) will be held 21st - 23rd August in Bristol Grammar School's Great Hall.
All Bristol Congresses are self-funded and money collected from the entry fee is, after expenses are deducted (organizers are volunteers), distributed as prize money. The advertised prizes are only estimates and are usually lower then awarded as it is hard to predict total number of entries.
The Summer Congress 2020 will be held in the remarkable Great Hall which brings additional costs. This venue proves to be popular with the chess players as it offers all benefits of the central location.
Raising the stated amount would enable the tournament organizer to advertise more and higher prizes to attract more titled players who are an inspiration to young and upcoming players and upgrade the chess equipment.
