Thanks to all who took part in the congress. There were 77 players in all, 41 of them Bristol league players, and let’s not forget this was also the league championships.
I thought it went quite well, and my special thanks to Geoff Gammon for assisting with the arbiting. The only flies in the ointment were the banging door, the clacking vents on Sunday when it was windy, and the member of bar staff who accidentally turned half the lights out on Saturday afternoon. My thanks also to those who stayed behind to help clear up at the end.

Nice to have won a prize... but I'm sure I only scored 2.5! Hope I'm not doing the rightful recipient out of a prize! :oops:

You're quite right Chris, you did score 2.5, as did four others, but as the lowest graded player, the prize is yours. Enjoy!!
