22 TABLES AT HAMILTON RESTRICTED

The club rooms were packed with players from many clubs and many grades for the popular Restricted Tournament today. The food on offer was outstanding with a full meal provided at lunchtime together with an excellent morning and afternoon tea. Combined with a free glass of wine by sponsor HEARTLAND BANK this event proved a winner and most enjoyable day for all participants.

The winners today were visitors from Rotorua Pam Moore and Margaret Robbie. Pam's husband Ian Moore playing with Roger Dempster took second place, something which Pam was keen to emphasise in her acceptance speech when she spoke of her enjoyment of the event today.

Hamilton players were well served in the restricted ranks. Third place in the Open/Int category were Cynthia Clayton and Nick Yeomans.
