Chris Ross wins at Derby while Efe Shimwell steals the limelight

Efe receiving his grading-prize

The Annual General Meeting and congress took place at the Hallmark Hotel Derby from 16 to 18 March.

In the tournament there were no surprises at the top of either section, but Efe Shimwell, in his first open tournament scored a very creditable 2.5 out of 5 to win Grading Prize B. The tournament was controlled by Gerry Walsh and Julie Leonard with Mike Murphy acting as steward. Many thanks to all concerned.
