66 pairs played in the Swiss Pairs and 37 teams in the blue-point Swiss Teams at The Barnstaple Hotel. With the hotel full, the welcoming Wine Reception and Dinner on the Friday and Congress Dinner and Quiz on Saturday evening were very popular. Our thanks go to Mike Fletcher for producing and running the quiz. Congratulations to the pairs winners Mike Bull and Graham Horscroft, the teams winners David S Jones, Jan Duncan, Simon and Debbie Richards and all the other prizewinners.
Our thanks go to Diane & Alan and Karen & Eamon who stepped into the gaps to prevent half tables and especially to Carol, Richard, Carolyn and their helpers who worked so hard to ensure the success of the congress.
