We couldn't have asked for better weather for the Devon Congress.

Congratulations to all the prize winners. Petar Ivanov and Stefano Tommasini from London won the Swiss Pairs,  losing just one match along the way and that only narrowly. They joined Ankush Khandelwal (Notts) and David Kendrick (Cambs) to win the Swiss Teams - again just one narrow loss.

Thanks to Colin Simcox, Phil Green and Jeremy Child who ensured that the event ran so smoothly, and to Geoff Clements and Alan Foan for the 'behind the scenes' work.

Next year we are playing in the Livermead House Hotel - right on the sea front. Put the date in your diary now - 3-5 April 2020. Looking forward to seeing you there.

The full results.
