There was a strong entry this year, and one of the scratch players, Andy Myers, found himself in the second block. Here he did gloriously, winning the block with six wins against a range of .5 to 2 handicaps and completing his first triple peel. In the first block Jeff Dawson won all nine of his games with triple peels, although achieving only +3 tp against Sam Murray.
The tournament was an early test of the new handicap card auditing for the Handicapper, Frances Colman. By the last day most players had found their handicap cards, although one player's was a blank, representing his first competitive game this year.
Last year there were just a few, but this year more players than not entered online on the CA site - very convenient once you get used to it.
The winners and runners-up were: block 1, Jeff Dawson, Mark Ormerod; block 2, Andy Myers, Jerry Guest; block 3, Andrew Dutton, Ian Parkinson; block 4, Brian Havill, Richard Williamson and John Culhane.
