his tournament might well come to be seen as the new site's graduation weekend, with all four lawns in use, fifteen players and three triple peels. At the finish Bryan Harral, Nick Steiner and John Bevington all had four wins out of five.
The playoff was decided by the corner four method: one ball on the fourth corner spot with one other placed anywhere at the player's discretion, the objective being to make as many hoops as possible starting with hoop 4. John made two and then took a divot trying a hampered roll up to hoop 6. Bryan made three and Nick only one, so Bryan took the prize. Had Nick beaten John in his last game he would have won outright, but he did have the consolation of two triples, against Bryan and Gary Bennett. The other triple was by Joel Taylor in his game against David Marsh. Thanks to Tim Brewer, David Woolley and Cliff and Jan Hayes for keeping everyone fed and watered.
