Outdoor Chess in Dartmouth 15 June 2023
The first of two planned outdoor events for the summer of 2023 took place on 15th June, from 6:30pm until bad light stopped play just before 10pm. The event included guests from the Brixham, Newton Abbot, Plymouth, Teignmouth and Totnes clubs. The time contols were 10 minutes plus 5 seconds per move. Many thanks to Tony Tatam for arbiting and sorting out the pairings.
The Weather Gods gave us a perfect summer's evening, and six rounds were played. Ben Wilkinson and Alan Brusey seemed to think there wouild be a prize for the loudest shirt!
The evening's winner was Trefor Thynne, who scored an impressive 5½. Alan Brusey (the only player who managed to take half a point off Trefor) came second on 5, and third place was a tie between Steve Levy, Chris Collins and Freddie Sugden on 4. The full results can be viewed on the Swiss-Manager results website.
Thank you to everyone who participated - it was a very enjoyable evening. The next Dartmouth outdoor event will be on Saturday 1st July.
