Incremental Time Controls
The AGM voted to adopt incremental time controls, with effect from the start of the 2017-18 season. The time controls for each player will be 60 minutes plus 30 seconds per move. Note that, due to concerns about the potential for late finishes, each player will have 15 minutes less than will be the case in South Hams internal club competitions.

Andrew Kinder (Torbay Chess League Chairman) presented trophies to team representatives and individual and "Players of the Season" award winners.
Team captain Phil McConnell received the trophy.
Team captain Ben Wilkinson received the trophy.
The whereabouts of the Division 1 and Rapidplay trophies are still beeing tracked down. It is hoped that they will be presented to the winners (Newton Abbot and South Hams respectively) at the Autumn Council Meeting in September.
