GC Millenium Level Play Tournament – Fylde 6th October 2018
Golf Croquet players descended upon Fylde Croquet Club to play the final tournament of the 2018 season – the missing ‘GC Millennium Level Play’. Fittingly after the summer we’ve had the single day event was played in bright sunshine with unbroken blue sky.
Format was all-play-all, 19 point single games which led (despite the official hoop order being stated on the Tournament Notice Board) to some very interesting routes used to play the required 10points!
Handicaps of the Players, ranged from 2 to 12, some playing in their very first tournament at all – just what and why the Federation holds these events for. Fabulous to see and be a part of, plenty of Fylde Members came down to watch and support, a very good day was had by those who attended – thank you Fylde!
The manager’s worst nightmare unfolded during the final round with three combatants all conspiring to finish on four wins each and each, having their single loss shared between them, so who beat whom didn’t help… to the rescue came ‘Net Hoops’; David Cornes and Frank Sharpes couldn’t even be split with them but thankfully, Libby Dixon was clear by a one hoop differentiator ahead of them both, so Libby is the 2018 NW Champion. Phew……
