Join Bridge Winners
...and the band played on...

We were playing in the EBU Norther Easter Congress yesterday when play was interrupted by an announcement:

"Carry on playing, but be prepared to evacuate the hotel in the next 15 minutes or so. The fire brigade are battling a moorland fire in the vicinity."

The hotel is the large dark building at the left of the photo in the article; you could smell the smoke from the hotel lobby.

 

Rest assured that the Swiss Pairs tournament was completed (there were one and half rounds of 7 boards remaining); and I suspect that the Swiss Teams event is being played today.

This was one day when you didn't need a hat on Ilkley Moor!
