Another successful Rookies tournament

Posted: 24/06/2012 by Ian in Club News

We had seventeen for rookies round 2. Christopher Symon came first with 6.5 out of a possible 7, dropping a half point to Murray Tuatini. David Chen and Nigel Crombie were tied on 5 points a piece, but David took second on tiebreak with Nigel third. Gary Judkins got the prize for best adult, and Maimoena Hulshof edged out her sister Zamiena for best girl. Age based prizes went to Benjamin Symon (U14), Sam Eddy (U12), Finlay Buckell (U10), and Campbell Wood (U8). Campbell was especially proud of his victory over Luke Halliwell. The full cross table is here, and a rogues gallery of photos is here. The final Rookies tournament for the year will be on 19 August.
