Chess in the Square!!
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

June 13, 2010: The Hatherleigh Chess Challenge ended in a nail biting climax. The top two players Barry Coward and John Morris after 3 rounds faced each other over the checkered board while the runners up played amongst themselves. Mr. Coward lost against Mr. Morris, seen in picture, which left  Barry with 3 points the same as one of the other players Mike Gilding. So a 5 minutes game was organised and Barry Coward lost, having in previous round beaten Mike Gilding therefore he lost out on the bottle of wine for the runner up! This was especially galling for Barry as his company Devon Direct had paid for it! As well as the trophy the winner and the runner up each received a bottle of wine from Eastcott Vine yard at  Northlew, www.eastcottvineyard.co.uk .
