Report from Rodney Lighton - TD and Organiser

The 15th annual Manchester tournament was held at Manchester Bridge Club. Kevin Jones is now the only player who has played in all the events. The clash with Mother's day seemed to cause some entrants difficulties, but we managed to find some last minute reserves to replace cancellations and 56 entrants sat down to play. The usual format was a qualifying afternoon of five five point matches with the top sixteen qualifying for the Main final and the rest for the consolation.

The Main final was, for the first time ever, an all Manchester contest. Mark Calderbank emerged victorious beating Kevin Jones. Kevin has now lost the Manchester final three times, but will doubtless triumph one day. The consolation was won by last year's Last Chance winner Ana Mancino in another Manchester final against John Ross. The Last Chance went to CJ Uttley who beat Ian Turner In the one point event Steve Fowles won against Ian Vaughan.

Thanks to Bridget and Lorraine for lunch and tea buffets respectively. Thanks to Kevin Jones for directing on the day. Also to Annette Jones for scoring and Rodney and Lorraine Lighton for administration, to club members for helping set up the room and clearing up and to Manchester Bridge club for hosting the event.
