Advanced Tournament 11-12 August

The tournament was won by Omied Hallam with seven wins in eight games, his only loss being to Annabel McDiarmid. Annabel had six wins in seven games, losing to Simon Hathrell, and close behind was Richard Waterman with six from eight, his losses being to Omied and Annabel. In their wake were Simon Hathrell and David Marsh, each with five wins in six games.

Lawn 3 showing the contrast between the damp and dry patches.

There had been rain prior to the tournament, but while the after-effects could be seen on lawns 2, 3 and 4, lawn 1 had dried out completely and was somewhat faster. Playing conditions were fair to good, but although several triples were attempted none came off, one of the nearest being Omied’s attempt at a combination pegout in his game against John Bevington. Our thanks to Rod Ashwell for management and Geoff, Angela and David for the catering.
