SCPA Winter Melee at The Ship Inn

On this cold, crisp and sunny February sunday, 24 players from six different clubs across the Southern Region gathered to play at the Regional Winter Melee. The competition comprised of 4 x 40 minute timed games with the money back prize for the friendliest player going to Terry Rixon who was suffering with a heavy cold and hopefully wasn’t so friendly that he shared it with everybody else.

Fourth place went to Steve Bickell from Cobbetts with 3 wins at +27. Then it became a ladies day procession all with 4 wins. Marion Stanbrook from The Ship came in third place with +12, her compatriot Sandie Barnett in second place on +18 and Julie Power from Shedfield/Fareham was crowned the overall winner with a plus score of 24. Well done to all.
