Congratulations to our winners.
Richard Bryant is club champion with 5 / 5 and Vinny Crean takes the U100 crown with 3.5 / 5.


Here is the draw for the final round. Steve Jones has been forced to withdraw so his four unplayed games are now full point byes. Well done everybody for making this tournament such a success. Good luck and enjoy - Keith Tabner

Prologue
This is a 5 round Swiss tournament to find the club champion for the Steve Jones Trophy (highest score), and the club under 100 champion (best score by player graded up to 99).
Games will be played under league rules (95mins each on the clock and score sheet to be completed) and will be submitted for grading. Will each pair please agree a match date - please play as soon as practicable - and email or phone the score through to me.
Contact details will be circulated separately.
Treasurer John Westhead will collect a £2-00 fee towards trophies / club funds .
Hopefully we can complete all 5 rounds by end September.
Inevitably the first round will be a David and Golliath affair - but don't be discouraged.
Both Nigel and I are committed to bowls on Tuesday nights during the summer so, with several other notable absentees, the field is clear for the next superstar to emerge!
Enjoy your summer chess.... and good luck.
Keith Tabner
