Following its successful inauguration into the FOCAL calendar last year, CoYork has returned for 2020. This time it shall be held in the Clements Hall venue, just 10 minutes walk from York railway station. For those driving to the event, we have an arrangement in place to use the car park of the primary school opposite Clements Hall, which will be free of charge for FOCAL attendees, and has space for around 30 cars.

The event will be ‘Lincoln-style’, meaning everyone will play six games over the course of three rounds.

There will be a buffet lunch included in the entry fee. If you are planning on attending and have any special dietary requirements, please inform George or somebody at FOCAL as soon as possible so that we can ensure you shall be catered for.
