Mark Suter won East Midlands Championship

After three, unsually for this summer, dry days, visitor Mark Suter beat local member Paddy Chapman +15tp +26tp in the play-off for the East Midlands Championship.

David Maugham, who had made a handsome box for the Hopewell Cup, won the play-off for the plate against his wife Alison with a sextuple peel.

Many thanks to Diana Plant and Sophie McGlen (with some help from her family) for catering, to Martin Beacon for stocking the bar, and to all who helped tidy up at the end of each day.
