W Clifford, W McGrath, and L Slater Shine

Posted by Juraj on Mon June 26, 2017 at 19h46

Wayne (otherwise known as TBB - The Bearded Boss) had a fantastic tournament with the highest performance rating of the event at 1897, and going 11-3. It earned him 100+ rating points. But no one knows exactly how he won the bingo ace. And Matt finished strong, edging back over 1600 again.

Wendy McGrath dominated Div 2 with 11-3, clinching first place. Just like last year's summer tourney. Welcome back to 1200+.

And Linda Slater had the best record in the tournament with a very strong 12-2 in Div 3, and a performance rating 400 points higher than the next competitor.

A big thank you goes to Rod Weis for not only agreeing to play if we were odd (he still has to book off his weekend!) but that he stayed and administered the tournament, entering all the data and keeping it running smoothly.

A heartfelt farewell to Kala who had to fly home overseas.
