This year's winter rapid was spread out over 2 weeks. We planned for 2 and 9 December but to avoid a clash with another event we changed to 2 and 16 December. With 16 December already in (school) holiday territory unfortunately many regulars were gone. Learning moment for us and next year we will stick to our schedule.
