Mick Riding is to be congratulated on organising a splendid Durham County Congress over the weekend of 6-8 May in the Dolphin Centre, Darlington. The event, which attracted a total of 159 entries, was formally opened by the Mayor of Darlington, Cyndi Hughes, with Baroness Hale of Richmond one of the honoured guests.
The Open Tournament was won by Brandon Clarke with 4½ out of 5, ahead of several players on 4 points: Danny Gormally, Peter Large, David Walker, Frederic Clement, Zoe Varney and Tim Wall.
There were also outright winners in the Major – Luke Remus Elliot, and the Minor – Maksym Kryshtafor (from Ukraine), who both scored a maximum 5/5.
