Brian Storey won the Cavendish Clock at the Crake Valley Advanced Weekend.

On saturday morning the players gathered for a weekend of competition and anticipation. As we sat down for lunch the heavens opened and not a ball was struck in the afternoon. Most of the competitors retired to the Farmers Arms at Lowick. Where the tournament dinner was held that evening, and yet again a fine
Meal was provided by Angus and Debbie.

Sunday brought fine weather and a drying wind. The lawns played as well as ever and the final of the event was between the veteran 66 year old from Bowdon, Brian Storey, and the shy retiring youngster from Bury, Paul Rigge.

Paul had progressed to the final beating "The Wilsons of Fylde" and Dave Nick +24tp and Brian had progressed beating Peter Wardle of Crake Valley +26tp in the semi final with his second tp of the weekend

The sayings: 'An old dog for a long trail', and 'experience will beat exuberance'
This certainly held true with Brian being the event winner +15
