Finals Day 2016

Not the normal beautiful weather we have become accustomed to on recent Finals’ Days but acceptable!  The usual flurry of activity and excited buzz was infectious though and even attracted a prospective new member!

The day was superbly arranged as usual by the tournament committee with fantastic refreshments provided by the Social Committee ably assisted by “Barbecue Chef”, Gordon!

Our official camera man was on duty again too – here are John’s best photos of the day together with the scores!
