Mick Haytack won Ashby AC Handicap Weekend

This year 6 players turned up in the drizzle on Saturday to contest this event, which made the lawns much easier to play than in the hard dry conditions that we had recently experienced, and as a consequence only one game went to time over the whole weekend.

An Egyptian scoring system was used to help determine a winner amongst those with an equal number of wins. This led to an interesting final round with two possible winners and three possible second places spread across the 3 games. Two players emerged with 4 wins - Gediminas Smolskas from Bury who played very neat croquet most of the time and earned a handicap reduction to 7, and Mick Haytack from the home club who was the eventual winner with a higher index than Ged, and having also won the only game that Ged had lost.
