Western events update

As we approach the final round of this series of tournaments, it’s time for an update. The final round will be played in a fortnight’s time (26 July).

Skittles (Losing points lightning)

Next week (19th July) we will play our annual skittles lightning event. For our President, this is the best short-form we play each year. It will involve all players commencing on a certain number of points based on rating, with points lost for losing or drawing games. Once players reach 0 points, they are eliminated, until we have only the winner standing.

Ever wanted the chance to eliminate your best mate from a tournament, this is your chance. In the first two years of playing the event, our President finished dead last and first. We never know what will happen – well he certainly doesn’t!. 😉

Hoping to see many players up for a night of light hearted fun.

A full lightning night!

From Steven:

Firstly, I want to say how terrific it was to have 33 players at the lightning on tuesday. This is by far and away the biggest attendance we’ve had at a single night in many years. Special thanks goes to Tony for getting a number of juniors down, however there were a large number of senior players, which is exciting for the year ahead.
Attached are the results for the tournament, Dean, David and Vishal jointly won with 6/7, well done to the winners.
Next week is the start of the next 5 round tournament, the Purdy Cup.
