6 pairs took part in this event. The morning was sunny and eventually quite warm, but we paid for it in the afternoon!
The tournament was run as an American block with an agressive time limit of 1 hour 20 minutes per 14pt game to ensure the 5 rounds would fit into the day. Despite the time limit a high proportion of games went to a peg out.
The winners were Jeff Rushby and Nigel Trotter who won 4 out of 5 games, from the runners up Lix Farrow and Phil Dunk, also 4 wins but whom they beat.
Special mention for Fred Bell and Ann Smith who both had high handicaps and therefore a forest of bisques on occasion; they both played with an accuracy of shot and understanding of play above the usual for their handicaps and thoroughly deserved the 3 wins they achieved.
