Club President Eddie O'Connor gave a brief talk on the Club's long history and this was followed by a chess blitz graded into two sections each of eight players.
The higher section was won by Daniel Martinez Otero but not without having to triumph over the other Daniel (Schlachter) in a series of play-offs as both had finished on 5.5/8. The other section also resulted in ties for first place between John Baragwanath, Dave Hunter and visitor Adrienne. As time had run out no play-offs took place and John took the modest prize.
The evening finished with refreshments in the bar which concluded a very enjoyable evening.
