The March blitz, held on Thursday 28th March, saw all the prizes won by junior members of the club. Zalan Nemeth repeated his feat from January of coming first with seven straight wins, and the runner-up was Denis Ruchko on 6 points. The under-1300 rating prize was more closely contested, being won by Andrew Finnerty, who scored 2½ points despite having to leave after only five rounds; his rivals could not close the gap, taking points off each other to all finish on 2 points from their seven games.
