2 — 8

Not our best night against the likely Division 2 champions. Gideon Vecht gained our only win. Good draw on top board for Paolo Casaschi who lost the exchange but managed to gain a passed pawn to tie down his opponent. Also a draw for Malcolm Gesthuysen. Jef Page won material and had perpetual check for the taking which he did not take trying to win for the team.

Jeff Page had perpetual check with Queen to Qc5 and back to g1.
