Hassall Grove Club Tournament - 26th April 1997


70 people turned up at the Vegas of the West (Rooty Hill RSL Club) to fight for the big prize money Jean Noonan was putting up. The Masters section was particularly well represented, although the same could not be said for their punctuality.

Rod Talbot had to be woken up by his passenger, Meg Henderson, from Melbourne, at 8.20 am., for thir 8 am rendezvous. John Holgate forgot to take into account distance, and set out at 8.30 am, with Peter Tobler, about half an hour too late, and Ros Gibbons from Wollongong (though not Masters just yet) forgot to reset her alarm clock. All these aforementioned players arrived about fifteen minutes after the scheduled starting time of 9 am, making for anxious moments for the organisers.

The tournament was well run, with 8 games being squeezed in, one more than the norm. Players with clocks were restricted to 40 minutes. The highlight of the event was some large high word scores posted. John Holgate posted a match-winning 167 for FROSTING against yours truly, Siva Sivaplasundram scored 133 in Division B, while Henni Maat, a keen new player from the Central Coast, posted an amazing 185 for TRACKERS in Division C.
