This was one of the most closely fought tournaments I have ever seen! Only 2.5 points separated the whole field and there was a 4-way tie on 5 points at the top. Congratulations to David Coyne who is the winner on S-B Tie-break. David will received an engraved Gold Medal in due course & also collects 10 points towards the BCCA Master Title. Equal 2nd were Ian Mason & Mark Eldridge who therefore collect 2 points each. Honourable mention must be made of Toni Halliwell who, despite finishing on the same points as the winner, finished 4th on tie-break & has no prize! Sorry Toni.

 I hope you all enjoyed the tournament & will consider playing again next season. A big thank you to Peter Hulse for acting as Tournament Director.
