The Second British National Congress was held in Bristol University from the 28th to the 30th March last. The main event was, similar to last year, a six-round handicap tournament, with players playing each other within a division.

The results of the players in the Top Division were:

  • Goddard (Cambridge) 5 wins
  • Han (Cambridge) 5 wins
  • Tilley (Cambridge) 4 wins
  • Anderson (London) 3 wins
  • Fairbairn (Bradford) 2 wins
  • Daly (Oxford) 2 wins
  • Whang (London) 2 wins
  • Barrs (London) 2 wins
  • Cock (Cheltenham) 2 wins
  • Irving (Sheffield) 2 wins
  • Hall (London) 1 win

The prizewinners in the other divisions were:

  • Division 2 - Clement (Harwell)
  • Division 3 - Nurse (Liverpool)
  • Division 4 - Lloyd (Oxford)
  • Division 5 - Greet (Bristol)
  • The Congress was enjoyed by every one who attended and thanks must be given to Bristol Go Club, who arranged and did all the work to make the Congress possible.

    The Annual General Meeting of the B.G.A. was held on the Sunday at Bristol and a report of it is later in this issue.
