Doncaster Congress 2020

 

This year’s 5-round Doncaster Congress was held from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd February, at Hall Cross School, in the gym again as the main hall was again in use for preparations for a theatrical production or some such purpose.  The number of entrants was below average, totalling 150 after excluding no-shows from the count, split across the sections as follows:

 

This year the event hosted the Yorkshire Championship, which this year was won by Rotherham-resident Oskar Hackner, who plays in the Sheffield league now for Sheffield Nomads.  He scored an undented 5 out of 5!  Local player Peter Tate had donated a vintage car-horn, found in Oxfam, for calling for attention at the start of each round.

(See the YCA Championship trophy and the horn here.)

 

Chris Stratford of Huddersfield took a number of photographs, which are of relatively low resolution, but you may request greater-resolution version, for free, from Chris at chrisjstratfordphotography@gmail.com.
