Inaugural Yorkshire White Rose AC Tournament – York CC – 11/12 August 2018
A single player from Lancashire travelled o’er the moor into Yorkshire to join t’others from Yorkshire, Tyneside, Nottingham, Anglia, Luxemburg & London – why? To contest the “Inaugural Yorkshire White Rose AC Tournament” at York CC over the weekend (11/12 Aug).
Rain was expected..nay! in Yorkshire – God’s own County? Yeah, well it was forecast to be a wet weekend but not a drop fell on Saturday tix hours of play (9:15-20:55) but by the time we left the tournament dinner, the streets were moist with light drizzle. Overnight we moved into full down-pour mode but, wonder of wonders, it cleared up again before play resumed Sunday am, so we got away with another dry tournament this summer.
The welcome was typical White-Rose Northern and the friendly banter/chat was engaging all weekend, Good venue with unlimited tea & coffee (with Biccies & Cake) covered by the entry fee but marred slightly by limited or no parking nearby – plan carefully if you plan to visit.
A fun & welcome addition to the northern tournament scene – recommended, but book your place early.
Oh nearly forgot – the bloke from Lancashire won, but he was wearing white!
