Some Past Players' Comments

 
Excellent organisation. Great venue.

Well done again for another very pleasant and well run Congress. I have played at the Torbay on and off over many years and have always found it to be one of the very best events to play in. I also thought that the pairings print outs were a great improvement over the old card system. Small touches like the lunch deals also show that you are doing everything you can to make the event easy and enjoyable to participate in. Well done to all your team, you really have a good formula for success!
