TAFCA TROPHY WINNERS 2019-20
TAFCA held their AGM (25/05/20) by Zoom (video conference software) and ended the 2019-20 season and declared all the champions/winners for all it`s competitions apart from the TAFCA Knockout which is still in limbo (more later). The COVID-19 pandemic spoilt the season but TAFCA were lucky compared to some sports as we were almost finished anyway.
Castlehill Chess Club Dundee congratulates all the winners of TAFCA trophies listed below, especially our Castlehill winners!
- Division One Champions: Dundee A (7th in a row!) It was a close league with Dundee winning on board points from St.Andrews Uni B & Perth A.
- Division Two Champions: Castlehill D. Well played Cameron Wilson (Capt); Gordon Thomas; Graham Atkins & Innes Ford. Division one is now your play ground!
- Division Three Champions: St.Andrews Uni B. Division three has net been played since 2004/05 and hopefully this will continue in the future. They are promoted to division two. Congratulations St.Andrews Uni B!
- TAFCA Overall Allegro Champion: Congratulations to Jacques Ophoff (Dundee). He was just two strong for everyone and he only played two events!
- TAFCA Individual Club Winners: Kirkcaldy (Andre Babin – Castlehill); Dundee (David Findlay – Dundee); Perth (Jacques Ophoff – Dundee) & Newport Knights (Jacques Ophoff – Dundee). Unfortunitly due to COVID-19 the Castlehill allegro did not take place. Well done Andre!

The TAFCA Knockout is still to be finished if possible, or will be null and void.
Given the current situation, TAFCA are not sure if OTB TAFCA league will go ahead in 2020-21. TAFCA will be monitoring the situation and will make a decision nearer the time.
But just in case TAFCA will be trialing a “TAFCA LEAGUE ONLINE” which starts in July and will run until Oct. For more information on this please visit the TAFCA website or contact your club secretary if interested in playing in it.
