On the 3rd December 2017, a Seaton contingent of 4 made the journey down to play in the 4th Plymouth Rapidplay and enjoyed some excellent results.
Paul won the competition with 5/6 and Jon came joint 2nd with 4.5/6. Steve wasn't far behind with 4/6 and joint 4th place.
Full results and report can be found here.
Seaton entered a team on Sunday 29th October 2017 in the DCCA Team Blitz. This is a 6 round tournament with teams of 4 and 12 minute time control for all moves. The event was very well attended with 15 teams entering and a strong field including IM Jack Rudd playing board 1 for Bideford. Despite an early promising start with a 4/4 victory first round, the team faded somewhat in later rounds. Full results can be found here.
