Some memories of the Egyptian GC Championship

[<<] [>>] by Reg Bamford
9th October 2007 (GC)

The 2007 Egyptian GC Open ended on Saturday, and here is a brief report on what happened:

There were 8 non-Egypt based players invited this year (Reg Bamford, Rob Fulford, David Openshaw, Len Canavan, Sharif and Ihab Abdelwahab, Mike McClure and the Egyptian-speaking Evan Al-mighty.

Semis: Alaa Al Nour bt Ahmed Nasr and Ahmed al Mahdi (last year's winner) bt Yassir Esmat
Final: Alaa bt Ahmed 3-1

Reg came second in his block (beating Alaa but losing to Ahmed), and lost to Khaled Younis 2-1 in the knockout. Rob came third in his block, and lost to Ahmed 2-1 in the knockout.

Some memories:

Grateful thanks to Amir Ramsis, the President of the Egyptian Croquet Federation, for his generous hospitality and the enormous effort - and financial support - that he puts into the game. He is almost single-handedly responsible for the internationalisation of Egyptian Golf Croquet and we all owe him a debt of gratitude.
