Wednesday August 28

In spite of two of our regulars, Carol Wakelin and Grayham Rundle, being on overseas sojourns we had eleven players cross swords tonight.

Our newish player, Hamish Moore, was drawn as the jackpot player but could not capitalise on the opportunity but did manage a win against our Ladder Leader Arthur Ramer... an achievement in itself!

John Symon returned from a skiing holiday, obviously invigorated as he beat all in his path.

Results for the night were:

1st place John Symon
2nd place Gary Stavrou
3rd place Giancarlo Yannoulis

We were again thirteen for the Wednesday challenge, even with one or two stalwarts missing!

First item on the agenda was the selection of the Giantslayer, and David Layman again scored the chance to battle Arthur for 402 of his ladder points.

Rafael Chattah was picked as the jackpot player but was unsuccessful – better luck next time Raffa!

The final ranking were – Jim Bean 1st, Arthur Ramer 2ndand Giancarlo Yannoulis 3rd

See you all next week !!

Wednesday July 31

An even dozen players arrived to play tonight, including two of the founding members who have been absent for a few weeks.

Eva Bitel has been absent on “medical leave” and it was great to see her back in front of a board.

John Symon also  returned after his last holiday – think he just comes back to do the laundry and pack for the next expedition!!

Hamish Moore, one of our newest players was drawn as the jackpot player but failed to scoop the pool.

Final results showed a tie between Arthur Ramer and Jim Bean, with David Layman trundling off with third place .

See you all next Wednesday– sorry about the lack of photos – the time got away from me – will try to do better next time.
