HR trophy presented at RAC annual dinner

As per tradition the Hamilton-Russell was once again presented on the occasion of the RAC Annual Chess Circle Dinner.

Ian Reynolds of the MCC (centre) collected the trophy from Daniel Pereira (left) of the RAC.

HR Cup presented 2014

It was a fine occasion and representatives of all the Hamilton-Russell clubs were in attendance. Many stalwarts of the HR Cup were on hand to do battle with GM Julian Hodgson in a simultaneous display after the dinner.

Apologies, I do not have the final scores, but noteworthy results against Julian included draws for Roger Emerson, Robert Feather and Ellen Moloney of the RAC and David Cohen of the Chelsea Arts Club.

Here is a photograph, taken on a separate occasion of several of the MCC’s Cup winning players.
