Alistair Wall new champion in Skye
With thirty-three players attending the fourth Isle of Skye Tournament, numbers are holding up, as did the weather.
Friday evening attracted a number of players for a 9 x 9 board league, which was won by Francis Roads (1k Wanstead).
The main tournament produced a new champion. Alistair Wall (2d Wanstead) won the bottle of Talisker whisky with 5 wins out of 6. The runner up, also with 5 wins out of 6, was Ulf Olsson (3d) visiting from Gothenburg.
Also in the prizes with 5 wins were, Edward Blockley (5k) and Greg Cox (10k Dundee). 4 wins were recorded by Stanislav Traykov, Donald Macleod, Roger Daniel, Alasdair Clarke, John Collins and John Macdonald.
A number of players took the opportunity to extend their visit for a few days and explore the island.
The next tournament is planned for March 2018 - pace yourself Alistair :)
