Last year's runner-up Brian Havill won all his games this year to secure the trophy.

On Saturday Brian and Andrew Gregory won 3/3, though Jeff Farrington could have beaten both.

Brian beat Andrew easily on Sunday morning. Andrew won his last round game, and hoped Tony Elliott could beat Brian to leave a 3-way tie. Tony didn't oblige, but could console himself with winning the most HCPs over the weekend.

Game of the tournament saw Duncan Hector concede contact in order to peg out John Reddish, leaving 1 and peg v 2-back. Duncan eventually won +2, while John deserves credit as the only player not to have a game decided by Time.

Winner: Brian Havill 5/5

2nd: Andrew Gregory 4/5

3rd=: Tony Elliott, Duncan Hector, Cliff Jones 3/5
