Plymouth Chess Club hosted the 2012 Devon County Chess Association Inter-area Jamboree at the Plymouth Bridge & Chess Club on Sunday 22nd January 2012. Unfortuanately East Devon and North Devon were unable to raise sufficient players to field teams so it was a straight battle between West Devon and South Devon. The South Devon team consisted of players from the Torbay Chess League clubs and the West Devon team consisted of players from the host club. The South took an early lead but by the halfway stage the West had drawn level at 3-3. West Devon finished strongly and eventually ran out comfortable winners to retain the trophy they had won at Exeter last year. West Devon results were (in board order) as follows:

David Twine 1, Richard Pollock 1, Mick Stinton-Brownbridge 1, Lucasz Moskwa 1, Brian Medhurst ½, Martin Quinn ½, Rob Wilby 0, Stephen Jones 1, John Dean ½, Chris Zisimides 0, Phil Lochhead 0 & Megan O'Brien 1.
