4 club members were in a 6 player group of Scots that played in the 9th Malakoff Open in Paris in April. Due to a certain volcano disturbing our travel plans, the Scots arrived late and were paired against each other! A further derby match Berry v Oswald took place in round 5.
Andrew Green took the scalp of Kozhuharov (2419) to round off a fine tournament on 6/9. Neil Berry also scored 6. David Oswald won the under 2000 Grading Performance Prize with his score of 5.5. Clement Sreeves scored 4.5.
