More successes for Deva members
More successes for Deva members

Congratulations to Liz Commins, David Stevenson, Stuart Matthews and Mark Weeks on finishing a very creditable 4th in the Derby Swiss teams event. Liz and David also achieved a 3rd in the Guernsey Congress Swiss teams playing with a pair from London.

The same foursome are pictured here with the impressively large trophy that they won at the West of England Congress.

It was a very good event for the Deva as, apart from our winning team beating 83 others, Sheila Shay and Ed Jones formed part of the second placed team.
