Pendle B Level Advanced Tournament (AC) 13th – 14th May 2017
Fourteen entries from N,S,E & W were attracted with several coming for the first time. I ran it as a five round Swiss event with two and three quarter hours time limits. There were many good shots, breaks and games played over the weekend. All in good humour and all with exemplary sportsmanship and conduct.
The final round had Andy B, David W, Liz W and myself all in contention. It unfolded with LW, DW, & PW tie breaking by taking two balls from corner four as far as we could. Tie break scores: PW 2+1, LW 1, DW 2+2.
During the first round we became aware of the 5th “Earby Jam Festival”. An open air music event some 300 yards from the club. Bands included Oddball (1.30pm to 2pm), The Biscuit Brothers (5pm to 5.45pm) and the What Went Wrongs (7pm to 8pm). Some players enjoyed the music, others less so. It was very loud! This appears to be an annual event.
