June 13th & 14th, Moira. Manager: Arthur
Six players contested this event in delightful summer weather at Ashby, in what was believed to be the first fixture in the CA calendar anywhere in the country to be completed this disrupted year.
Having just six players meant that we were within the current Covid-19 limit on gatherings, whilst being able to play the event as an all-play-all competition. The Egyptian scoring scheme was adopted to increase the likelihood of a discrete winner after 5 rounds. This was fortunate as 3 players finished with 4 wins, having all beaten each other! Heather Hardy emerged as the winner as she had lost her first game, so ended up with a higher index than Roger Watson and Arthur Rowe. The eagle-eyed will notice two players in the picture less than 2 metres apart – they were husband and wife Roger & Debbie Watson from Nottingham who had to play each other in the final round on Saturday.
4 wins: Heather Hardy, Roger Watson, Arthur Rowe
1 win: Richard Sanville, Debbie Watson, Mick Haytack
