Paul Rigge won the David Openshaw Trophy at the Pendle & Craven Advanced Weekend.
Ten players met to compete for the various trophies: the main event for the David Openshaw Trophy was run as a straight knockout. The players were also divided into two blocks, the top five competing for the Chris Clarke Trophy and the bottom five for the Jeremy Dyer Trophy. The weather improved as the weekend progressed and was even sufficiently warm for Paul Rigge and Phill Scarr to still be playing their game at 10pm! The main event final was a best of three between Dave Nick and Paul Rigge. The first game went to Dave +26tp with the second game going to Paul. The decider was very tight. Paul failed the rover peel with Dave on 1 and 4 back. Dave then demonstrated a well controlled tp until rover! He also failed leaving Paul an easy finish. Paul also won the block beating all four opponents. The B block was won by Peter McDermott who also beat all four opponents. Fastest game went to Dave Nick (52 minutes) in his first final game. This was a very enjoyable event with much fun and even some sunshine on the Sunday afternoon.
