Good evening everyone. Now the dust has settled on a very exhausting weekend, i can now do a report on the open!
Firstly, thanks to Ian Gordon & Sid Ponting on their help with setting up the tables on Friday. At 9.30 Saturday morning, they all played beautifully but I think people will agree that they were a bit tricky during the day. They were very cold when installed and being a lot warmer on the Saturday with extra bodies in the room, certainly changed them!
Thanks to the Inter-Area, Lorin Clough, Tony Willis for their help with sponsorship and to all those that donated a raffle prize.
