A record entry of 268 was received and if the numbers go on increasing then it may well prove necessary to move from the Langside Halls. The top tournament, the Invitation event, comprised twelve players, five non-Scottish and seven home players...

The final scores were: R. D. Keene, D. N. L. Levy, and R. McKay 3½; L. Barden and M. Fuller 3; J. Montgomery and D. B. Pritchard 2½; M. Fallone, H. Golombek, and C. W. Pritchett 2; D. B. A.
