    It is very good that there are norm tournaments here in Scotland. Will Quality Chess extend this to the sponsorship of Fide rated events and also events for disabled players ?

    This is a good event to sponsor

    We have organised this event because there are some Scottish players trying to get the IM-title, but no events for them. There are no Scots seriously trying for the GM-title after Keti got it, and there are plenty of chances for all other players to go for their goals, so we sponsored what was missing.

    Yes Jacob, I agree with what you say. However, there is more to the chess community in Scotland than just aiming for titles. I would hope that this event you have sponsored would encourage players to try and aim higher. Sponsors can help by promoting events as you have done.
