The Brain of Derbyshire event and Presentation evening will be at the Royal Oak, Ockbrook starting at 8pm on May 15th.

Remember that the Brain of Derbyshire is open to all residents of the county, and not just members of the DPQL.

It would be good to see as many of you as possible at this event.

The Cup and Plate finals will be played at different venues this year, as a single appropriate venue is not available on 1 May. It was decided by the committee that the finalists’ own venues would be used and a draw was made to determine the home team.

  • The Cup final will be played at Bradley House between Bradley House and Bowling Green.
  • The Plate final will be played at Square and Compass between Square and Compass and White Hart.
  • Matches to start at 8.30pm, of course.

Please can both home teams book their venues and confirm to Don Ingham that they can host these matches – any problem and we will seek to play at the opponent’s venue.

The committee will organise independent readers and scorers for these matches (and computers, etc). All are welcome to come and watch and enjoy the occasion – so hopefully we will see you at one of the venues.
