This tournament is being held in memory of Raymond J Pomeroy who amongst his other interests organised the United Kingdom’s Civil Service correspondence chess teams for fifty years despite periods of serious ill-health. He was elected as a Vice-President of the Civil Service Chess Association (CSCA) and the London Civil Service, Post Office and Municipal Chess League (LCSPO&MCL) in 1993 for his outstanding services to Civil Service chess.
That Ray has carried out all of his responsibilities to a significantly high standard for the benefit of so many chess players throughout the United Kingdom testifies to his determination and his commitment which few equal. Without Ray’s excellent work, correspondence chess in particular within various Bodies including the CSCA would likely to have ceased.
In 2022 Ray was awarded the English Chess Federation’s President’s Award for his services to chess.
