Ian Lines won the Pendle & Craven June Advanced Weekend to retain the David Openshaw Trophy. The Chris Clarke Trophy for the A-Class was won by Lee Hartley of Fylde, after an exciting final game against Dave Nick. The Jeremy Dyer Trophy for the B-Class was won by Liz Wilson, also of Fylde, who beat David Barrett fairly comprehensively in the decider. Dave Nick won the Chris Hudson Trophy for the fastest game with a very neat 35 minute +26tp against Brian Kerr.

Congratulations also to Lee and Liz for reducing their handicaps to -0.5 and 3 respectively.

The lawns at Pendle were quite good, running at about 10 Plummers despite the overnight rain. The hoops were well set to a 1/32" by Abdul Ahmad, but were still reasonably easy to run due to the damp ground. However, the slight slopes near a few hoops sometimes punished inaccurate break play and led to a few triples breaking down.

The event was run as a semi-flexible Swiss, with an A- and a B-Class, with 6 players in each.


Ian Lines (-2) 5/5 2tp
Lee Hartley (0) 4/6 1tp
Dave Nick (-1) 5/8 2tp, 1tpo
Brian Kerr (1) 2/5
Peter McDermott (2) 2/5
Tom Griffith (0.5) 0/6


Liz Wilson (3.5) 4/5
David Barrett (0.5) 3/5
Ken Jones (4) 3/5
Peter Wilson (2.5) 2/5
Terry Foster (4) 1/4
Robert Dodds (3.5) 1/5
