Competitors who arrange to play in the SCR Bar (Room 51 Keele Hall) and use the set kept there are asked to give notice of this to interested members. Results should be entered on the master copy of the draw on the Bar Noticeboard, and notified to Chris Wain, tel: 34474.

Following some concern in the past about the length of certain ties, it has been decided that as a general rule clocks should be used. (Timings: the first 35 moves in 70 minutes; thereafter 15 moves in each 15 minutes). A clock has been kindly loaned by Steve Westland, and it may be borrowed from the bar with the set.

Winner 2010: Watson Fuller

The prestigious Trophy itself is on display behind the bar.
