The Nordic Chess Championship
The board of the Nordic Chess Federation has
decided to give the right to organize the 2016 Nordic Chess Championships (in
all three groups: the open, women and seniors) to the Finnish Chess Federation.
The tournaments will be held in late October 2016 in Vuorihotelli, at Sastamala
(50 km from Tampere/Tammerfors). Further details on the events will be
presented by the organizer in due time.
There were also fine bids from Denmark
(Nørresundby Skaklub and Aalborg Skakforening) and the Icelandic Chess
Federation. The board decided in favour of the Finnish bid primarily because it
covered all three events (the open, the womens and the seniors), thereby making
it a chess festival.
