Light is switched on

Limewood member John Light was among the prizewinners at the British Rapidplay Championships this weekend. He won against fierce competition, including from two of his Limewood clubmates – no favours given or asked.

Admittedly it wasn’t a very big prize and he did have to share it but it was well-earned.

The Championships were played at a new venue this year – Temple Moor School in Leeds, off the Selby Road.  The change appeared to be a generally popular one.

There were 11 rounds over the 2 days.  Time allowance per player in each game was 20 minutes plus a bonus of 10 seconds each move made.
