Ian Lines won the Nottingham Open Weekend

The Lines' celebrated their first wedding anniversary in style!

Seventeen players arrived at Nottingham to play in the Open weekend. Delayed slightly on Saturday morning by the tram works closing the road outside the club. Spread over 5 lawns gave everyone the chance to be single banked at times. With a mild weekend but the ground rather damp from previous rain the hoops were forgiving and a number of peeling attempts were successful.

Ian Lines swept all before him winning 7/7 including 5 triples. Debbie came in second on 6/7 with four triples and her maiden sextuple. She made it look very controlled and only three other games stopped to watch its completion!

There was a peeling prize incorporated over the weekend with a handicapping factor so longer handicaps got bonus points for completing peeling breaks. With the factor Debbie won the peeling by a large margin, without the factor she would still have tied for first.

A special thanks to the volunteers catering to keep the players well fed.

62 games were played over the 2 days,
