Congratulations to the winning team of Kathleen Shirley, Irene Flood and Shirley Vander Schaaf. They are pictured receiving the trophy from our sponsor Edward Cunnington of “Meet at 66 King St East”.
Kathleen’s team won all three games with a total points score of 27+4. After a big win in their first game their second and third games were much tighter affairs. After two games only two other teams, those skipped by Peter Kurita and by me (Bill Arthur) were still in the running for the trophy. Kathleen’s team faced Peter’s in the final game which she won by 6-4. That loss dropped Peter’s team out of the prizes and despite the fact my team lost our final game 6-7 to Jo Carleton’s team we had sufficient points to claim second place with 2 wins and 28 points. Only 3 points separated second from fourth
The full results are on the results page and there are some more photos on the photos page.
As far as I’m aware this was he first time we had run an in club tournament of 3x8 games, as opposed to the normal format of 3x10 and I think it was a success given that we had 34 members playing. If you have any thoughts on the format of in club tournaments please let a member of the EC have your views.
We will be varying the format yet again with the next tournament which is 2x12 end games. That will be held on Thursday June 12th and the sign up sheet is on the bulletin board. Please sign up as soon as possible.
