Heaton Park 2/3rd July, Mid Summer Advanced Tournament (by Paul Rigge 02/07/11)
Hosted by Bury CC and managed by Bury member Geoff Young. Only Ten players finally turned up after the build up over the last two weeks of ‘hokey-cokey’. Players were in, players were out, some applied, other withdrew. Again Manchester was blessed with soaring temperatures and blue skys over both days, because of the numbers attending only three lawns were needed but the three we used were all running fast!
The Cup was played as a flexible swiss with Alan Mayne still being the ‘in form’ player not only winning the silverware but also hitting his next trigger point – now a minus one. The B Class Trophy was won by another Bowdon Member, Mike Steer.
