Mark Avery won the Newport Open Weekend, defeating Nick Mounfield in a best-of-2 final. He thus retains the Donald Cornelius trophy

A full complement of fifteen players gathered, including three affiliated to Cambridge University, which has a mutually beneficial association with the Club. Handicaps were spread from -2 to 3.5, and there were quite a few close games. The lawns were nicely quick, with interesting patches. 16 out of 47 games were decided by Triple Peels - Avery had 6, the Lineseses 3 each.

No real incident to report - just excellent weather, good pub meal, friendly company. An agreeable weekend.
