Ulladulla Championship - 21st & 22nd May 2005


Report from Gary Pollard

Seventy three players contested the Ulladulla Championship Tournament over the weekend with Joanne Cramb, of the Ulladulla Scrabble Club, playing in the Recreation Division taking out the honour of being this yearís Champion in winning thirteen of her fourteen games over Masters winner, Richard Jeremy, on twelve wins.

Joanne is just the second local, in the nine year history of the tournament, to win acheive this, local, Julia Robertson, won in 2003. Joanne, on top of her $150 divisional prize money, received a further $100 cash and two nights accommodation at the Dolphins Motel in Mollymook.

The lack of all day tea and coffee didnít disuade anyone and by all accounts the option of sirloin steak or chicken snitzel and salad for lunch on the Saturday and a selection of sandwiches on Sunday were well received.

The barbeque following the tournament on Sunday was a great get together, followed by a fantastic sing-a-long. jean Noonan, John Barker, Lynn Parnell, Alison, yours truely, were in fine form but our hats go off to Diana Hillyand for her very animated performance, not only during the singing, but also in the charades that followed the sing-a-long.

Next year's tournament is 27th & 28th May.
