Freebird takes off

It was great to see a number of new visitors to the Club again this week, where tournament play kicked off for the year with the first four rounds of the Freebird Trophy. This series runs over two weeks under a time control of 10 m + 5 s. At the half-way stage of this first leg of the tournament, newcomer Stewart Holdaway leads on 3.5, with Gordon Lyall and Geoffrey Gunawan next on 3, and David Paul next on 2.5. Current results can be found here.  The final four rounds of this first leg of the tournament will play next week.
