Summer Programme: Survey Results

Many thanks to all those who participated in the survey. I intend to publish the programme soon, but in the meantime, here are the survey results.

Question 1: You were asked which of a list of events you would attend. Responses were as follows.

Blitz tournament (from 5 to 15 minutes)90%
Coaching from our top players80%
Simultaneous Exhibition with one of our top players80%
Simultaneous Exhibition with a Master80%
Rapidplay tournament (15 to 25 minutes)80%
Lightning tournament (move on the buzzer)80%
Thematic tournament80%
Gambit tournament80%
Coaching from a Master70%
Fischer Random (Chess960) tournament70%
Puzzles evening70%
Time handicap tournament (strong players have less time)60%
Piece handicap tournament (strong players have fewer pieces)40%

No alternative activities were suggested. As expected, very few of you would have been happy to pay more than the customary £1 unless a GM was involved.

Question 2: For Rapidplay and Blitz tournaments, you were asked which time controls you'd be happy to play.

Time ControlScore
15-minutes (5 games)80%
05-minutes (10+ games)50%
