The second Tuesday Winter GC Handicap Tournament was played in heavy rain most of the day. But that was not enough to dent the resilience of the eight participants today, shown right from the start when people voted to play full-length games.
As often happens, the morning block games were good and the afternoon placing games even better. The day saw some excellent long hoop runs, some brave clearances, some delicate short shots and plenty of 13th Hoop finales, notably the last game for 1st and 2nd place between John Maguire and Martin Dock. Equally impressive was the tactical thinking that was on display throughout the day. A real tournament, played in a warm spirit, well prepared and managed by Sharon and worthily won by John.
The next event will be a trial of a novel 'No Extra Turns' system before normal service is resumed for the rest of 2020.
