A chance for new GC players and those with higher handicaps to get into more competitive play

On a rare sunny day, 12 members with 7+ handicaps gathered for a half-day level play GC tournament on Tuesday 7th October. Postponed from October, the competition was intended to encourage high-handicappers with little or no experience of competitions to enter.

Three blocks of 4 played three games each with impressive speed to complete their games by 12.30.  Nerves soon settled and there were several very close fought games.

Block A was won by Kathy McColgan with 2 wins and + 6 hoops, closely followed by Gail Dowd who also had 2 wins with -2 hoops.

In Block B, Karen Hayton won all 3 of her games with +5 hoops, with Linda Davies in second place with 2 wins and +3 hoops.

Alan Innes was the winner in Block C having also won all 3 games and an impressive +9 hoops.  Martin Avis took 2nd place with 2 wins and +6 hoops.

Well done to all 12 players, I think some of those handicaps will soon be much lower!   We look forward to seeing you at future competitions.
