Basil Townsend Quaich 2020

1 August 2020, Auchincruive

On a fairly sunny, windy, but midge-free and rain-free day, four clubs competed for the Basil Townsend Quaich: Auchincruive (Kevin Wright), Edinburgh (David Fell), Glasgow (Stefan Colling) and Meadows (John Campbell). The competition was played over three rounds of 18-point handicap AC on the Auchincruive lawn under socially distanced guidelines.

This was a fairly close competition and going into the third round, three of the players could still win it.  After the final round, Auchincruive, Edinburgh and Glasgow had all won two games and lost one, but Glasgow (Stefan) was the overall winner as he had a much better hoop difference, mainly due to him playing his bisques to great effect in his game against Kevin, and making an 8-hoop break! So well done to Glasgow and Stefan! Despite social distancing a pleasant day was had by all.
