OPEN FILE SPRING
The Spring 2022 edition of the association magazine, Open File, is now out, with its focus being the NATO Chess Championship in Belgium last year.
As usual, it's a cracking read!
However, please note that the Magazine Editor has announced that he will be stepping down as editor at the end of the year - a big thank you to Carl from all of us for his hard work over the years. However, this provides a great opportunity for a serving member to take over the reins and become a key member of the association.
