This year saw a return to a
completely full house of 96 entries, despite a few last minute
As usual everyone would get
5 games both with and against different people each time.
There were two big winners in the first set of games, the trios
of Nick Wood, Sue Isles & Rita Runnacles
and Doris Frost, Clint Watling & Jim Goodrich,
with both teams picking up a healthy 14 shots in their first
Twenty competitors made it 2 wins out of 2. Leading the way,
all tied on 21 shots were Ellen Grube, Susan Hurley
and Nick Wood. And only one shot behind were Doris
Frost & Steve Ball.
The players still on maximum points were whittled down to just
12, with the top 10 separated by just one shot from one another.
So leading the way on 29 shots
was Susan Hurley, followed by Nick Wood on 28,
Ellen Grube 27, Doris Frost 26, Marion Bean
25, Rob Cook 24, Peter Fellingham 23, Sue Gilder
22, Brian Pryke 21 and Ken Southwood 20. The
other 2 on 6 points were Andy Pooley and Pam Crawford
With one round left to play there were still 8 players who had
not yet dropped a point.
Still leading the way was Susan
Hurley with 37 shots and she was still followed by Nick
Wood, just 1 shot behind.
Rob Cook (34 shots) was in third, followed by
Doris Frost (33), Sue Gilder and Peter Fellingham
(32), Brian Pryke (31) and Pam Crawford (25).
It looked as if this
year was going to yield an unusually large number of perfect
scores and yet even at this late stage there was time for people
to falter and that they did, at least most of them did, in fact
all but 2.
That allowed the minor positions
to be taken up by those who at least managed to remain unbeaten
So in 6th place on 9 points
and 33 shots was Matt Crane, 5th was Doris Frost
(9 pts, 37 shots), 4th was Peter Fellingham (9 pts, 39
shots) and 3rd was Trevor Bean (9 pts, 46 shots).
Which left just the two who
had won all their games. Second place went to Pam Crawford
on 10 points and 30 shots while this year's winner was the person
who had led from the second set of games, Susan Hurley
on 10 points and 43 shots.
We hope everyone enjoyed their
day and look forward to seeing you again next year.
