We were down to 19 competitors for our November Saturday Competition and the weather forecast could be the reason. Unfortunately, the forecasters were correct and our games were delayed a couple of times, but we managed to get both games played.
Well done to the brave players who came out to be part of the action and to Melissa who took the prize money home. We had two players score the maximum score of 26, Melissa and Richard V, and they both had won previously this year, so had a one handicap to be deducted from their score. So, it came down to a countback to decide the winner – Melissa had conceded nine points to her opponents during her two games and Richard V had 15 points scored against him. Melissa now has 2 handicap points to be deducted from her score next month. All handicaps will be erased after December’s competition and everyone will start with a clean slate in January 2023.
The December Saturday Competition will be played on 17 December and the winner of the Laurie Anderson Trophy (which is not impacted by handicaps) will be announced then. December’s games can have a big impact on the results as they stand now and we look forward to some great games then.
