Ulladulla Club Tournament - 20th & 21st May 2000


Report from Gary Pollard

Forty two hopefuls competed in this yearís competition in three divisions of 14 playing fourteen games over two days with excellent performances all round.

John Barker (Sydney) in masters and Merle Young (Wollongong) in recreation won all but one of their 14 games, with Merle being named Ulladulla Champion with a margin of 1120 over Johnís margin of 1076, Christine Foot (Canberra) and Judy Hay (Revesby) both in Intermediate were the next best performers finishing with 12 wins .

Other great performances worth mentioning were Susan Gordonís return to tournament play to finish second in masters, Colin Bruce and Yvonne Byattí second and third placing in just their 3rd tournament and the two novices, Kim Greco and Judith Emery 8 and 5 wins .

As in the past a great time in what must be considered one of the best NSW (and indeed probably Australia) venues was had by all and then more good times at B-B-Q and Gary and Alisonís new home after the tournament .
