Jeff Dawson continued his good early-season form to win the Letchworth 14-point Advanced event with an unblemished 100% record.

The single-day event saw nine players, in the handicap range -1.5 to 2, complete 28 games in around eight hours. Rather surprisingly, with 80 minute time limits having been applied, only four games went to time.

Despite numerous attempts at peeling turns, the day's only success was that by Jeff who completed a very controlled straight TP in his games against Nick.

This was the only 14-point Advanced event in this year's CA calendar and it proved to be a huge success. Everyone enjoyed the day (helped by nice weather and excellent courts) and with plenty of interaction, unique challenges and limited sitting-out time, it's a fixture that will definitely be repeated next year.

As far as a single-day format goes, the format is hard to fault. Hopefully other clubs will follow suit next year.
