St Davidís Day Tournament

 

With just eight players, tonightís tournament was played as a round-robin.

 

The Welsh team was scrambled together, with Martin called up to even the numbers, his eligibility being solely that he had been to Wales.

As it was the Non-Welsh filled the top three positions after handicaps were applied, so comfortably won the day.

 

The individual prize provided an upset again, a common occurrence in this handicap-based tournament.

Daniel scored a win over Adam and claimed a draw in against Andrew in a clock-affected game to put him over the line after handicaps were applied.

Joshua managed to win all games, but even a picket fence was not enough to catch Daniel.

 

Pictures of this yearís winner and some past winners are below.
