Wednesday April 21


 Tonight's draw started with 21 players, which meant a bye – always unpopular.

 

The bye player, David Stubbs, was then selected as the jackpot player, meaning he only had to win his next two matches with a good margin to be in contention to take the pot....

 

However we then found that one  registered  player had not been put in the player list – balance restored!!

 

After an intense 3 or so hours, we had a result.

 Jackpot was safe...

 Placings were :

 1st    David Reitzin

 2nd    Angelo Voulgaris

 3rd    Steve Clarry 


This week saw the start of an inter-club challenge between us and Bucharest, Romania. Each club is represented by a team of eight players. The tournament consists of four rounds. Running results will be posted on our Online Tournaments page.

Wednesday April 14

 Today was a red letter day – a lady at the top of the honours, another new member, welcome Andrew Scarf, and a record 22 players on the list to play .

 David Reitzin was drawn as the jackpot player, which made a few of us nervous, but it was not his night – unusually – and the pennies are back in the bank.

 

The Giantslayer match was played, and David Reitzin held on to his points, again!!

 

Final results were:

 

1st  Jenny Saunders, one of our newest recruits, and one of the very small band of ladies in the group – well done Jenny!

 

2nd  Mohammad Nejati    

 

3rd   Peter Voulgaris

 

 See you all next week!!

Wednesday April 7

 We were 19 players tonight and the opening item was the draw for the Player of the Month, who was TD Gary Stavrou.

The jackpot player draw followed and Robert Coote had the honour for the night, however he was not successful on this occasion.

 

The Giantslayer draw was next and Garry Byrne was offered the opportunity but he declined and the redraw gave Peter Voulgaris the chance to wrest 149 of David Reitzin's hard-won points from him.

 

The final results were:

 

1st  Jim Bean

 

1st Gary Stavrou

 

3rd David Stubbs

Wednesday March 31

  A robust group of 20 players tuned up for the pre-easter battle, and the first item on the agenda was the drawing of the jackpot player.

 

Peter Koorey got the gig, but at the end of the night the pennies were still in the bank.

 

We also gained another new player – welcome to Wally Weiderman!

 

One of our players had a beautiful new board to debut , and there were many envious glances ….


David Reitzin remains Ladder Leader and next week a Giantslayer will be chosen to take him on.

 

Final results were:

 

1st      Kee Yio Wan

 

2nd     Gary Stavrou 

 

3rd     David Reitzin
