Hi - do you have any details on how to enrol in this please?
I will be taking part on this for the first time - I did try last year but was told that it was only open to British nationals and I now finally became British so looking forward to taking part next year.
Thanks
Inés

Hi Inés,
I'm not sure where the misunderstanding was last year. The event is open to all nationalities but only the British nationals can be selected for the British team for the World Championships. Indeed we do generally have a few international competitors taking part from a number of countries.
Registration is straightforward - drop me an email at liane@ukpuzzles.org letting me know which events you wish to take part in along with overnight requirements and I'll add you to the list. A little closer to the time, I'll then be requesting payment.
