Bernard Bruno Memorial Rapidplay - 20th June 2016

26 players turned up for the 8th Bernard Bruno memorial tournament which marks the end of the season.  5 rounds of 20 minute games, handicapped on time, was the formula. 

Thanks to Will Graham for his efforts recording results and setting the clocks. Thanks also to Kevin and Keith who donated book prizes.

It was funny to see some of the juniors who in previous years had enjoyed a time advantage now having to yield the time advantage to their older opponents.

The England football team successfully managed not to distract the players and made the chess look very exciting.

An enjoyable evening, thanks to all who took part, a decent sum raised for club funds too.
