Devon Pairs Final 2020

Unfortunately, storm Dennis, illness and event clashes reduced our numbers at this year's Devon Pairs Final.

Congratulations to the winners, Brigid McElroy and Ruth Edmondson and to the runners-up, Dick Andrews and Gaynor Wiseman. The top four pairs go on to represent Devon in the EBU Corwen Trophy in June (with the DBA paying the entry fee for the top two pairs). If any of the top four pairs are unable to go to the Corwen, their places may be taken by next highest-placed pair.

Thanks to Jeremy Child for directing.
