West of England Championship & Congress – Day 2

 The results of the morning games, with its 5 draws,  led to a certain bunching up of scores, behind the sole leader, Keith Arkell. In the last game to finish, Slade pushed Mackle to the limit, but with only a few minutes of extra time left, a draw was agreed, with Slade having the only piece on the board. The withdrawal of Fallowfield jr. meant that a bye was created and this fell to Maurice Staples. He got the full point, but had a meaningful game against a player with a bye  in the Minor. By chance (no pun intended), this happened to be Hazel Welch, which meant that a former WECU Champion was playing a former WECU Ladies Champion, and that doesn’t happen often.
