John Daniels won the Sussex CCC Advanced Weekend
The weather was happily better than forecast and almost matched the warmth of the welcome given to the 10 players in the Solomon Cup and the 8 for the B class Sussex Tumblers by the SCCC at Southwick.
John Daniels defeated the 2nd seed Alan Cottle by only 3 on his way to the BO3 Final on the Sunday where he really found his form. A single error in the first game went unpunished by Nick Harris and John took that +26. The second game was not quite so clinical but still resulted in a +17 win for John and the Cup.
Alan Cottle won the Consolation Event with 4 Wins from 5
The B Class Sussex Tumblers was competed for by 8 players with Handicaps ranging from 4 to 8 in what was supposed to be a 5 round Swiss format. Using the well known tactic of losing in the first round resulted in David Cook H7 winning his remaining 4 games whilst Paul Wolff H5 won his first 4 and lost the last to Avril Rangioni Machiavelli H6. Due to "Driver Error" David and Paul hadn't actually played each other. On the basis that David had beaten Avril whilst Paul had lost to her, the Tumbler (only one) was awarded to David Cook and Paul Wolff was declared the runner - up.
Our thanks to Sussex CCC for all their hard work in lawn preparation and Catering.
