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.
