Coco Club in Pattaya hosted this competition with 24 players on Saturday, Oct. 8.  Led by Max from the Blue Heeler on Soi Lengkee, all the players were keen and arrived 30 minutes early for the 8 team triples.  The format was the same with leads, seconds and skips in different pots.

(L to R) Les, Darryl, Graham, The Colonel, Rick, and in front Nit.

In league A the trio of Nit, Graham and The Colonel was the only team to win all three games and the others had to have a bowls count back, which Rick, Les and Darryl edged to snatch the runners up spot.

It was close also in league B but Peter, Billy and Lita took the top spot and Alan, Sid and Kob also made it to the semi-finals.

The semis were held after lunch with both games close but it was league A that produced the finalists.  With all matches over 10 ends the final was a tie and an extra end had to be played and it was Nit, Graham and The Colonel who took it 7-6 over Rick, Les and Darryl.

It was a great day again with the referee not required – we think he will be redundant soon.
