Alternative Chess
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

June 17, 2007: The Alternative International Chess Congress held in The Square on Saturday delivered multiple thrills a minute, as 18 players battled for the supreme prize of a bottle of wine. Teams came from all over Devon to take part in a contest that will be remembered particularly for the showery conditions in which it was played. Most stuck it out until the end when a nasty downpour sent all but two scuttling to Old Schools to keep dry. Local music stars Rob and Dave played under the spreading chestnut tree while Cream Teas were served. Fabulous! Do it again next year please! Pictures here. UPDATE JUNE 18TH: The chess made 80:23p for the hospice charity it supported.
