Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Open, which hopefully you all enjoyed. Thank you to the Cressex Club for their continued support.
Well done to Nigel for winning the 18th Bucks Open, to Lee the losing finalist (here's to next year Lee - 3rd time lucky) and to the losing semi finalists Tony and Mark. Also congratulations to Bob Hall on winning the plate (even though he slaughtered me in the semi final!!) and to Steven the losing finalist. The highest men’s break of 20,020 was won by Nigel, and the ladies break of 4,820 was won by Pauline.
Lastly, thank you to everyone from Wycombe who helped unload/load the tables (we managed to leave a little earlier this year - 2.00am!!), Ernie & Matt for setting them up, Dave for the usual delivery/collection, Doug for all your help, the table sponsors, Sue & Jeff for selling raffle tickets brilliantly again (with the help of Cliff), all the people who donated prizes (especially Syl Murphy who every year never lets us down with brilliant prizes - one day you will win a Drone Bob Hall), Pauline for folding the tickets as usual, Nigel for doing the format (as he does every year and would be lost without him), Jean for your format which saved me so much time this year, and lastly to my lovely partner in running the day Chris (although you are right Chris, playing and running it just is not possible, I apologise for getting to the Plate semi and leaving you to it), all of us in Wycombe thank you – and as ever, please can we book you for next year :)
PLEASE NOTE THAT NEXT YEARS OPEN WILL BE A WEEK LATER - SUNDAY AUGUST 12TH
See you all soon Dawn
Cheers Dawn for the running of the open, much appreciated! Also, thanks for putting next years open to the following weekend next year because of Ian Gordon's wedding!
World Champion 2013, 2017 You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
Yes we have changed the venue to the Totteridge Community Centre. We currently hold our Finals Day and Open on different weekends of the year. We are a very small league of only 8 teams and we just can't afford not to do as other counties do and utilise the tables for a whole weekend :(. We hope that this won't affect the entries we receive as we know lots of people like Cressex Club but we just can't justify the cost of both weekends.
