It was a very enjoyable evening with 24 players taking part. Paul Cawley won the tournament with 5½ points. It is a 6 round swiss event where every move has to be made on a buzzer and is always open to members and non-members alike, and including mince pies. The buzzer starts at 10 seconds a move and moves to 5 seconds towards the end of each game.
The competition will be staged again just before next Christmas. Details will be posted here when available.
