Mid-summer? Time for the Pendle AC Advanced weekend, freshly cut grass, championship hoops firmly set into new holes, ready to greet this year’s ten entries – all from inside our Federation, for a great friendly tournament.
A random draw began the first round of this Swiss, and as expected with no time limits in place – some staggering of game finishes occurred… mattered not, new pairing were quickly sorted.
Saturday started bright and mild, but temps soon dropped as a weather front moved through (most players donned jumpers).
Most managed either three or four games on the first day. Sunday was not only warmer but even the sun broke out as more rounds ‘ticked’ off.
All things shake out, so by the mid-afternoon, the silverware could be presented
Chris Clarke Bowl(‘A’ Class) – Lee Hartley
Jeremy Dyer Bowl(‘B’ Class) – Roger Staples
Overall Tournament Champion (the David Openshaw Claret Jug) – Paul Rigge (retained)
