Meadows GC Open 2015

Jola Jurasinska2-3 May 2014, Meadows

With 2 of the 8 entrants only available to play on the Saturday, the Tournament was run as separate American Blocks on each day, with the winner being decided by the player with the most overall wins.

Even for the time of year, the weather was very cold on the Saturday and, whilst it was marginally warmer on the Sunday, it rained for the duration!

We had a welcome visiting player from Latvia, in Andrejs Savinovs. Malcolm Smith (Auchincruive) took the opportunity to play some warm-up games before he captains the SCA GC team to play Latvia in June and Ruth Munro made a Saturday appearance before returning to Cheltenham.

Four of the recently qualified GC referees were amongst the competitors and they found there was no shortage of opportunities to put their learning to the test.

At the end of play on the Saturday, Bob Darling had only suffered one loss, with his his constantly accurate clearances and hoop running proving to be the deciding factors.

Fortunes changed slightly on the Sunday with Bob only able to record two more wins and with Jola, Jamieson and Hamish managing 3 wins apiece. However, Bob's overall total of 8 wins from 12 games proved to be sufficient to see him deservedly win the Tournament.
