MCF Heaton Cup

Dear Chess Friend,

We will be running the second iteration of the Heaton Cup (an online 6 round swiss tournament played over 6 weeks). The aim of the tournament is to support players looking to improve their chess, practice their long-play skills before real OTB chess resumes, and to give less experienced players the chance to gain experience of long-play.

The unique element of the tournament is that all games are analysed by the tournament organisers, and shared via round reports, and lichess studies. The tournament is free, but all participants must be ECF Members/Supporters.

Please can you pass this e-mail onto any players who might be interested in playing.
Website: https://www.mcfonlinecomp.org/

Details:
Six rounds, swiss system, single section

Time control: 60 mins + 15 second per move
Suitable for all playing levels (last time we had near-beginners to 2200 ECF graded players)

Participation is free, but players must be ECF Members / Supporters
Games will be ECF Online rated
If you have any queries, please e-mail [email protected]

ECF Email for those of you who don’t get them

The English Chess Federation (ECF) have partnered with GoMembership to provide thousands of discounts on offer from over 270 of your favourite online and high street retailers. You can save hundreds or even thousands of pounds on your purchases. In my own case I will be taking advantage of the shopping discounts and the Vue cinema discounts in particular.

The rewards scheme is tiered, based on your membership as follows ---
· Platinum is free;
· Gold costs £5 for a year;
· Silver (including Free Junior Silver) costs £10 for a year;
· Bronze costs £15 for a year;
· Supporter (including the new Queen's Gambit Scheme) costs £20 for a year

To take advantage of this new scheme simply log into the ECF membership site at https://ecf.azolve.com/ using your membership username and password. The menu is in the top left hand side of the screen. From this menu select the ‘Rewards’ tab, then simply add the reward scheme to your cart and pay. Once you have paid you will receive a confirmation email straight away.

Overnight you will receive a welcome email with details of how to access your gift cards and Vectis cards. If this doesn’t arrive in your inbox, please check your junk email (we’ve had instances of this happening when we tested the system).

There are two main types of discounts available -

1. Gift cards
These are self-explanatory once you are on the site. They can be used online or in the store via your phone or printed off if required. Each gift card offers a different discount depending on the retailer (see examples below), so by buying a gift card with John Lewis, for example, for £100, you only pay £94 at the till.

2. Vectis Card
This is a phone app, and a number of retailers on the site use this card. With the app you can search retailers offering discounts within one mile of your location, or search by retailer name. Once your retailer pops up, simply click on it and follow the very simple instructions. Apple store is on Vectis. If I had had a Vectis card last Xmas, I would have saved £60 on my children’s headphones bought as Xmas presents.

Some examples of discounts -

10% off Apple products
6% off John Lewis
5% off M&S
Numerous discounts from cinema chains such as Odeon and Vue
25% off Prezzo
10% off Pizza Express
10% off Costa
4% off Deliveroo
Up to 40% off AA breakdown cover
Up to 15% off NCP parking pass
5% off Lastminute.com
4% off Virgin gift cards
Up to 42% off airport parking
Various discount packages on BT Broadband

With very best wishes for Xmas and the New Year!

Kind regards
