Club update and new training sessions

The first junior tournament got under way, with 30 participants registered for the 10 minute plus 5 second add on, Rapid time format. The tournament will run for the next six weeks. There were no big surprises in round one, but there were good wins for Ewan, James and Tautua.

In the seniors, congrats to David P (photo) who wrapped up series 1 of the Freebird tournament with an unbeaten 7 from 7, followed  by Guy on 6, and David S and Ross on 4.
