A turnout of 14 tonight with four of our regular players away.
Ben Anderson was drawn as the Jackpot player but failed to capitalise on the opportunity.
The jackpot is now approaching $200 and certainly worth winning.
John Symon was the clear winner tonight with an impressive 318 point score.
Seeing that 321 is the maximum score, John's achievement was outstanding.
John will be overseas for the next three months so his ladder ranking will suffer greatly.
The current Ladder Leader is, again, Ned Marootians and a Giantslayer will be chosen next week to wrest 82 points off Ned's score.
Second place tonight went to Ned Marootians and third spot was shared by David Reitzin and Gary Stavrou.

There were nineteen players on the boards tonight, and we are pleased to welcome newcomer Sally Weymouth to the group.
Sally found us on Meetup.com – hopefully we will get more new players from this and it would help if current players could join the group and provide occasional feedback.
The jackpot player was Ned Marootians but he missed out tonight, so the $150+ pot is still up for grabs.
The final placings were:

A very healthy group of sixteen players fronted up to play tonight.
The jackpot player was drawn and tonight Carol Wakelin was given the opportunity to scoop the pool. A loss in the first round put paid to her ambitions!!
