Only had 8 competitors this year with main rivals being Alan Honey and Mike Hughes, the three of us all on handicap of zero compared to the rest of the field ranging from 3 – 6.
All games for me went as planned on the first two days, including defeating Mike 26 – 9 and a triple peel. Alan had a close call against Trevor Black however also finished the two days undefeated.
Played at a number of different venues with a field of 18 in 2 blocks of 9. Superhoops were also used at Tempe for the first time in a NSW event.
Day 1 started with a couple of good wins over Martyn Prins and Alan Walsh which triggered another handicap level, so now playing off scratch. Lost the third game of the day to Tim Murphy after been hampered out of hoop 1 and missing. Lost 1 – 26tp.
