Exeter & District League Prizegiving & RapidPlay Match 2018

24 players foregathered at the Manor Hotel, Exmouth on Tuesday evening (12.06.2018) for their annual end-of-season prizegiving and rapidplay match. It wasn’t too much of a prizegiving as two of the four trophies had been won by new Exeter University teams and they were all either busy with exams or had already finished their academic year. However, judging by the photos (see below), the other two teams  looked pleased enough to be there.

The final charts, as prepared by League Secretary, Tim Paulden, were as follows:

After a short break, during which two teams of 12 of approximately equal strength were sorted out from those present, one belonging to the League President, Brian Aldwin, and the other owing allegience to its Secretary, Tim Paulden, play got under way, with two games of 30 minutes per player.  After all 24 games had finished, with the closest of wins for the Sccretary’s team, the table looked like this…..
