Five Limewood players found their way to the Doncaster Congress this weekend.
Paul May, playing in the Major, went through the event unbeaten. His 2 wins and 3 draws ensured him a share of the Major grading prize.
Siefaldin Holi was also in contention for a prize up to the final round of the Intermediate. He finished with 3 points out of 5.
John Grasham (Intermediate), Sri Sriharan and Philip May (Minor) all performed well but did not make it into the final medal tables.
Spice was added to the tension during the final round when a fire alarm required the building to be evacuated. It was a false alarm but at least it gave those who lost in that round the makings of an excuse.
Our photo was taken in a previous year and shows where the congress is normally held. This year school renovation meant that the event had to be moved to less spacious accommodation downstairs.
