“Munro Challenge” – Pairs Competition – 2018
On Monday 10th September we held the Munro Challenge Pairs competition. The event was again very well attended, and we achieved the optimum number of 16 entries, allowing us to pick eight pairs at random. Once we had ironed out the glitch of entering Jim twice, which could have seen him playing against himself, battle commenced on time at 7:30 in pleasant weather conditions.
The format was four games of 30 minutes each and at the half-way stage things were already becoming clear as only two teams had won both of their games – Simon and Andy, and Malcolm and Jim. As luck would have it, these two teams were drawn to play each other in the third round and Simon and Andy registered a crushing 13-1 victory. Buoyed by this success, they went on to triumph over Richard F and Trev in the final round, thus remaining unbeaten and becoming worthy winners of the Munro Challenge trophy. This was Simon’s second trophy in two weeks and sets him up for a possible clean sweep of the club competitions.
In a late burst, Richard S and Mac stormed into second place by winning three out of four of their games.
Many thanks to those who attended.
