Even though the weather gods were not kind today, 290 players turned out for the pairs competition. All went well until about 1.15pm when rain decided to interrupt our enjoyment. All adjourned for an early intermission and returned to finish the first game. Unfortunately before we could commence the second game rain again intervened. The game was abandoned and prizes paid on the first game only. Today’s winners were Alan Gosling and Mario Mascilongo with a magnificent 30 points +23; that score pushed perennial winners Geoff ‘satnav’ Keynes and John Nelson to second place with 29 points +13. Jackpot number today was +17 , no winner so will increase again next Monday.
