After losing the first 2 encounters, the city-dwellers were determined to end that run, and, to that end, fielded a stronger team. The key to the seasiders' 2 wins was that their strength on the lower boards more than made up for losses at the top end of the team. This time, it was the other way round - the country team only registered 2 wins on the top 11 boards, yet lost 7 of their bottom 8 boards, leaving the City team easy winners 15 - 10.

 

25th Teignmouth Rapidplay Chess Congress.

Trinity School, Teignmouth. n Saturday 22nd April 2006

Our thanks to Ray Chubb for the following report and photographs.

The 25th Teignmouth Rapidplay Congress held at Trinity School, was opened by Teignmouth Deputy Mayor Cllr David Weekes and the President of the Teignmouth Chess Club John Simons. The President thanked Cllr Weekes and the Teignmouth Town Council for the continuing support of the Teignmouth Chess Congress which is now the premier rapidplay chess Congress in the West Country. He thanked Trinity School for providing such an excellent venue, commenting that the School continues, year-upon-year, to improve its support facilities and the playing areas.

The event was extremely successful with 25 players in the Open; 37 players in the Graded Section and 49 in the Junior section.

Cllr David Weekes and Teignmouth Chess Club President at the Congress opening.

 

The following are the results of the Congress.

With the return of International Chess Master James Sherwin (Bristol) in a bid to win his third successive title, he was the outstanding favourite. However it was Graham Bolt (Exeter) who took the only win from James Sherwin, in the third round, by an early winning exchange of Sherwin’s’ Rook for Bolts’ Bishop. This caused problems for Sherwin and he needed more analysis time, which eventually put him under time pressure and he finally conceded the loss. Bolt had two very difficult matches against Robin Kneebone and 15 year old son Jeremy Kneebone from Penwith, Cornwall, in the fourth and fifth rounds, where he only managed two draws. A win against either would have secured him the title outright.

Junior Event: (Under 12 on 1st September 2005)

The junior section included a number of graded juniors, which is an indication that more, younger juniors are playing English Chess Federation graded games.

The eventual winner was decided in the final round, sixth game, between Nicola Sillifant and Teignmouths’ Laurens Stegink. It was an excellent game with Nicola winning to take the title. Nicola Sillifant is the first girl to have won the Junior Section. Nicola started with a draw against Jordan Ricketts but did not drop a game after. Jordan dropped his third round game against Bradley White from Whiltshire, which took him out of contention.

Nathaniel Cleland from Dorset, under 9 years of age, scored a splendid result of four wins from six games.

President’s Report for the

Spring Meeting of the Devon County Chess Association

to be held at ‘The Met Office’, Exeter

on Friday 24th March at 6.45pm.

 

A lot has happened since our last Autumn Executive Meeting held on 23rd September 2005.  We enjoyed Brian Hewson reporting the success of the ‘Under 175’ team winning the National Title. Then this month the County Second Team retained the Wayling Cup with a fine victory over Somerset coupled with a great win by the First team too as reported on our excellent Devon web site. Brian must be congratulated again in respect of his Captaincy and organisational ability in fielding strong motivated teams whilst achieving a good personal win rate for the First Team too. He will no doubt report on the current success this year.

Along with many others your President was saddened by the unexpected death of Steve Boniface last year prior to the 6th Royal Beacon Seniors Chess Congress in Exmouth which was his special baby! Bob Jones’s Obituary was an excellent tribute to a great servant of Chess. Your President wrote to his brother Paul on behalf of the Devon Chess Community enclosing an appropriate card expressing our sincere condolences. Perhaps it was fitting that ‘Neat v Tidy’ occurred at the ‘Seniors’ as it was always Steve’s wish to pair them together. In fact this was mentioned again by Steve to your President at the last Paignton Congress. Your President received a letter of thanks from Paul Boniface and family on 29th December last.

On 27th January 2006 your President executed a simultaneous display, along with the current West Country Champion, Jack Rudd at the Torquay Boys’ Grammar School. Various prizes were donated by the President. 24 boys and staff sat down to play and fortunately the honour of the County was preserved as both players won all of their games. It was a long day as fully reported on our Devon web site. This initiative was well received. In the letter of thanks from the school it was rewarding that they considered the DCCA had been brought as a reality into the chess lives of the boys. It is hoped to hold a similar event for primary schools in the North Tors Area covering Chagford to North Tawton and Winkleigh.

Trefor Thynne reported that the first meeting of the Newton Abbot chess club had taken place on 5th October 2005 and is flourishing. This is great news.

Bill Frost’s wonderful contribution in running the Devon Chess web site is worthy of special mention and is much appreciated.

Finally, your President much regrets that he will not be able to support as many of the West Country Tournaments this year as in the past 5 years.  He missed the recent Exeter Congress as the result of just having had removal of 3 new cancerous growths from his bladder.  Unfortunately, this is and has been an ongoing situation. However, he has not let anyone down and has recently turned out at various chess matches at short notice.  His personal ambition is to make his 40th Wedding Anniversary on Easter Sunday (missing his favourite Western Open tournament) and his 60th Birthday on 7th May which 7 years ago was somewhat doubtful.  Chess and his very supportive wife have been his saviour. He intends to play in the ‘Teignmouth Rapid Event 'in April and ‘The Welsh Open’ in July along with a few Russian Grandmasters who will have to look out!

 

Roger J Neat,

President, DCCA

DEVON V SOMERSET

On Saturday 11th March 2005 Devon met Somerset in both the County Competition and the Wayling Cup at the West Buckland Village Hall.  They came away handsome winners in both competitions as form demanded as Devon players out graded the Somerset team on every board played.

With this result, Devon win the Wayling Cup for the second year in succession.

THE KIDLINGTON CONGRESS

The Kidlington Congress is one of the longest running tournaments in the British Isles.  It was first held in 1904 and this year had three sections - gradings under 225, 170 and 125.  Andrew Greet from Cornwall won the main tournament with a clean score of 5/5, but another notable performance from a West Country entrant was that of Robert Thompson.  Robert is one of some very fine Devon Juniors marking their marks in clubs and tournaments.  In  2004 he won the Minor Tournament at the Torbay Congress with 5/5 points when just 11 years old,  and has since scored well in subsequent events.  However, at Kidligton in Oxfordshire over the weekend of 4th and 5th February, he did exceptionally well in coming third in the under 125 tournament. This was all the more remarkable as there were 93 players taking part and he scored 4½ points from the 5 rounds - the half point being a bye!  The winner scored 5 points and who knows what the result would have been had Robert not taken the bye.  As it was his grading performance was 157 whereas his grade at the moment is 107!

 

 

A message from Paul Boniface

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Acquaintances of Steve Boniface,

We are writing to thank you all for your kind words, tributes and memories
of Steve that provided us with so much comfort at one of the most unexpected
and saddest moments in our lives. It was a wonderful surprise to see that
our brother and uncle had touched so many people’s lives unbeknown to us
and, probably, to him as well. Steve was truly one in a million and in our
struggle to come to terms with what happened, seeing the amount of people
who had their lives brightened by him has made the last couple of months
that bit more bearable.

We would also like to thank everyone who donated to The British Heart
Foundation in memory of Steve. You raised a phenomenal £934.78 so thank you
all.

We would have loved to have shown our gratitude to you all personally but
the amount of people that held Steve in high regard, was so overwhelming it
would have been impossible; but please know you are in our hearts and we
appreciate all you have done for us since the untimely death of our beloved
brother and uncle. We feel very proud of him.

Paul, Sue, Catherine and Samantha Boniface

 

President’s Report on Chess Simultaneous Display at Torquay Boys’

Grammar School on Friday, 27th January, 2006

 

Our thanks to Trefor Thynne for the photographs.

 

In 2005 whilst playing in the veteran County team against the boys I indicated to Trefor Thynne that I would be pleased to support his school’s chess club activities in anyway I could. He asked if it would be possible for me to come along and give a ‘Simul’ during 2006. I confirmed that I would be delighted to do this as I am a keen supporter of both children’s and youth chess, which after all is our future. Furthermore, I said that I would be happy to donate several prizes and possibly be able to bring along the current Western Champion, Jack Rudd.

It had been a great pleasure for me to attend both the inaugural evening of the landmark ‘Across the Board’ exhibition in The Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery in Exeter on 15th September last year, featuring 18 games from around the world including our famous ‘Lewis Chessmen’ whose permanent home is at the British Museum, and also to man one of the ‘chess play tables’ for a couple of days thereafter. Indeed, I was fortunate to be very busy with children’s groups, individuals and parents when on duty. I had the joy of playing several children and giving some tuition and also providing referrals to parents as to whom they should contact for junior chess. I was delighted to be on Ivor Annett’s efficient rota.

My offer was then taken up by Trefor Thynne and we agreed on the above date. I play for Jack Rudd in the small but highly successful Bideford chess team so we are both colleagues and friends. I asked him if he would take part alongside me in the ‘Simul’ and he agreed immediately without hesitation. His appearance, in my view, would inspire the boys better than a middle aged (60 in May) senior official of the DCCA! All was arranged. I had decided to provide 7 prizes comprising a large ‘Star Wars’ Chess set, 3 chess books and commemorative News Box featuring world events and 2 bottles of wine for adults. The occasion also enabled the boys to obtain sponsorship from parents and friends in support of the New School Hall project. In order to encourage the proposed sponsorship I opened the account with a donation too.

On the appointed day I left home at 12 noon and I met Jack for lunch at the Burton Gallery in Bideford at 1pm. We set off for Torquay at 2.30pm; arriving at the school at 5pm experiencing the usual build-up of traffic from Newton Abbott onwards. The school kindly provided afternoon refreshments which were much appreciated.

By 6.30pm 21 boys and 3 adults sat down in readiness to play in the excellent surroundings of the library which I personally enjoy. We were welcomed to the school and the event by Trevor Thynne (schoolmaster and seasoned Under 175 Devon County team player) and I was invited to address the boys and parents who were present in support of their sons! Firstly I explained the rules for the awarding of the prizes and then stated that I had 4 main messages for them:

      1.)Chess is a game for Life and must be cherished.

       2.) Teach someone to play chess and you will give them a gift of great value; it is theirs forever. This was my plea/challenge.

      3.) To be a success you need to use the ‘6 CDs’ namely:

            a)You need DISCIPLINE - to organise your studies and plan ahead.

           b.) DETERMINATION - you have to stick with your plan and goal.

          c.) DEDICATION - you have to commit yourself to the task and game.

         d.) COURAGE - as Topalov says you don’t have to be afraid to lose; go for it!

    e.) CHARACTER - when things go wrong you have to pick yourself up and learn from your mistakes. Life is a journey where you take two steps forward and one backwards. Making the first move or taking the first step is the beginning of the adventure.

    f.) CONSISTENCY – you have to remain constant and true in all you do!

4.) It is also important not to allow anyone to steal your dreams and aspirations. Remember that everyone has GENIUS within!

 

Having delivered my message(s) I introduced Jack and gave them a resume of his career todate including his recent success at Hastings when he beat West Country IM Andrew Greet (2428), Scottish GM Colin McNab (2456) and an 80 move draw with top Polish GM Piotr Bobras (2563) and narrowly missed an IM norm by half a point! He has won the West Country Championship title twice in 2000 and 2005 and is currently Captain of Somerset County team(s) and plays for Bristol in the prestigious 4 Nations League. I explained that Jack was my local hero and that I greatly admired his speed and tactical play; he is a very exciting and gifted player.

I also introduced myself as a positional player with stamina despite my age and illness challenges. When Jack was winning his first title in 1986 as the Under 7 Champion of England I was aged 40 at the zenith of my career and was on the point of retiring from competitive chess having achieved my long term goal of leading and motivating a small North Bucks club team of 6 to win the prestigious Oxford Handicap Shield. In the final I drew with a 210 on the top board (playing with the black pieces) after a four hour struggle and 60 moves. I also related that someone tried to rubbish my dream of achieving a grade of 170 upwards two years ago when I was a mere 129 and I responded by winning the grading prize at the 40th Dorset Open beating a 171 in round one, drawing with Webb (201) of Crowthorne after 4 hours play (he went on to win the title ahead of Andrew Greet) and then beating a 155 and losing to Franklin (195) of Richmond on time when positionally up playing the London system. It was great to have my Exmouth club friends come up and congratulate me. The moral is that every dog has its day! I am still a middle aged improver with many miles to cover!

Play began at approximately 7pm. Jack had the top 12 players including Tefor Thynne (164) and I had the younger 12 who were all determined to beat me. Jack as usual was powering along and finished by 9pm winning all of his games. This was as anticipated. I was comfortable with my performance although one or two of my junior opponents were giving me grief. However by 9.30pm I won my final game; having won all of my games too which was a relief as it was more than 20 years since I played a ‘Simul’. I did not know whether or not I would have the stamina to stand up for three hours; having just driven over 100 miles to the school in 2.5 hours. Earlier in the week I had played in a rapid match (8 games in 4 hours) and also for Exmouth on Wednesday evening and was due for another match on Saturday too.

Jack and I had previously agreed that if we achieved a clean sweep the premier prize, ‘Star Wars’Chess set’ would go to the boy who lasted the A book award was presented to the player who lasted longest against either of us. Ironically it was awarded to a cheeky talented Max Biddlestone who had pressed me all night. He forced me to use all of my defensive skills until he made a mistake which cost him the endgame. Jack awarded the main book prize to Justin Yau for putting up a good fight. I then awarded a book prize to Tim Gane for his sterling effort. Jack awarded Ian Richards a book prize for a determined performance. The two bottles of wine were allocated to Jacob Deacon and Tim Seah. One chess book prize is being held back to be awarded to the best recorded game; Jack is reviewing all of the games. Some will be annotated by Jack and placed on this web site, hopefully accompanying my report.

At the end I commended all of the boys for their sportsmanship and dedication to the task! Trefor Thynne responded by thanking both Jack and myself for our attendance and support. He then presented us with the School’s Centenary Tie which I will be proud to wear as I have enjoyed all of my four visits to the school. He also expressed that we had put the school on the map from a chess standpoint.

I then proceeded to drive Jack via dark country roads to Bideford finally reaching my home some 40 minutes later at 12.20am. I had driven for a total of 5 hours, some 226 miles. My next match was in Exmouth on Saturday at 2pm which lasted 4 hours and over 50 moves to achieve a draw. I was somewhat tired! During the week I had played 21 games (15 wins, 4 draws and 2 rapid play losses only) taking 13 hours; travelled 472 miles just to play chess. Your President is either mad or committed to the game!

DCCA GRADED JAMBOREE

The Devon County Chess Association Graded Jamboree for the A. J. L. Wade trophy was held on Sunday, 22nd January, at Torquay Boy's Grammar School.  This is an event for which the trophy was donated in 1978, for four teams drawn from North, South, East and West Devon.  Teams are composed of twelve players whose combined gradings must not exceed 1500 points.

Unfortunately North Devon have not competed for the last 5 years and the tournaments have been triangular events.  The South side is predominately the Torbay and District League minus the Plymouth club who form the West Devon team.  The East is broadly represented by the Exeter and District League.

This year the event was narrowly won by South Devon with 7 points followed by last year's winners West Devon on 6½ points and East Devon with 4½ points.

The ending was particularly exciting in that the last four games to finish would have had an effect on the overall result.  Before these games were decided The South had 5 points and were involved in three of the games being played, and the West were also on 5 points but had two games unfinished.  One of the four unfinished games was between a South and a West Player.  This game was expected to be favourable to the West and duly finished giving the West the full point.  The game on Board Three was won by Bill Ingham and the Board One game finished as a draw.  This meant that the West had a total of 6½ points with the South on 6 points with the game on Board Five to finish.  This game was a theoretical draw, but the wily old campaigner, John Gorodi, managed to convert it into a full point gaining an overall victory for the South.

THE BEACON SENIORS 2005

The Royal Beacon Congress opened on a sombre note with a minute's standing silence to the memory of Steve Boniface.  The idea of the Seniors had been originated by Steve and it was with impish humour that he named the "Junior" section.  

76 players took part - a record for the tournament and pressing very hard on the maximum of 80 entries.  

The Seniors produced a very tight finish in that at the end of the penultimate round, there were four players with a chance of winning.  Two exciting games resulted in Norman Stephenson and Andrew Footner sharing first place.  

The Junior tournament was won by Alan Barton who has been the only winner since the tournament has been run.

On Tuesday, Ron Hepenstal presented the B.C. F. President's Award to Bob Jones - see the report below.

Prize winners were :- 

Senior Section

1st= Norman Stephenson 185 (Middlesborough) 4½/5 pts. Andrew Footner 159 (Yeovil)  £80.00 each

3rd Paul Byway 189 (Hertford) 4 £40.00

Grading prizes:

U-102 Ray Chubb 90 (Teignmouth) 3 £50.00

 

"Junior" Section

1st Alan Barton 176 (Hastings 4½/5 pts £80.00

            Obituary                 

revised19/10/05 

Stephen R. Boniface (1951 - 2005).

SCARBOROUGH 2001

The sudden and unexpected death of Steve Boniface, aged 54, the westcountry's best-known chess organiser, was announced this week.

Born and raised in Northampton, while still at school he started playing at the White Melville Club in the town. He came to the westcountry in 1970 when he took up a three year teacher training course at Rolle College, Exmouth. The fact that the local chess club met in the College made it easy for him to get quickly and fully immersed in Devon chess. Although completing the course, he didn't take up teaching but became interested in the then new world of computers, which later became his career.

He remained in the Exmouth area throughout the '70s, a time when the weekend congress became an established feature of the British chess scene. He played in them and quickly became interested in their organisation. His first organised event was the Exmouth Primary Schools Chess Congress in 1976, which he organised with fellow club member, Bob Jones. It was immediately clear that this was his metier, and he soon moved on to larger, adult events.

In 1980, he left the county to become a computer maintenance operator with a large insurance company in Brighton. But he regularly returned to the west as he became controller of long-established and prestigious events at Paignton, Torquay, Exeter and the peripatetic West of England Championship.

His day job took him to Bristol in the early 1990s and with its active chess league he was in his element. His services as a tournament arbiter grew in demand as his talents became increasingly recognised nationwide. Eventually he retired early in 1999 and was free to devote himself fully to chess. Without losing touch with his existing westcountry events, he became involved in, to mention but a few more, the British Championships, the Guernsey Congress and the 4NCL

In 2000, he devised the formula for a new event, the Royal Beacon Seniors Congress, held next to Rolle College, Exmouth, which he ran for its first five years. At the time, it was Leonard Barden's opinion that this was the first and only event of its kind in the UK.

Eventually, he was awarded the title of International Arbiter by the world's governing body, one of only a handful in the UK. He was also very active in the Chess Arbiters' Association, helping to train many up-and-coming controllers.

Many tributes have been paid to his unstinting work for the chess cause, all of which refer to his warm and convivial personality at chess tournaments, one which could generally defuse potentially difficult situations with a light touch without compromising his position as the man in charge, able to take tough decisions if necessary. Off-duty, he could amuse his colleagues for hours with a fund of stories about the follies and foibles of chess players. He was a well-respected and greatly popular servant to the game, whose loss will be deeply felt by players and fellow organisers for years to come.

He was unmarried and is survived by his brother and two nieces, Kate and Samantha. Our condolences go to his family.

 

          R. H. Jones.
