Eighteen teams registered to compete in the first Grand Prix of 2017, played at Inverleith PC on Sunday 23rd April. It is encouraging to see a number of newcomers to Grand Prix (and some veteran returners too!). The usual six round ‘Swiss Ladder’ with time limited games format continues for Grand Prix this year.
The competition was won by Triaxle – Emma Montgomery, Paul Fletcher, Kevin Johnstone and Jimmy Johnstone – with 5 wins from 6. Following closely behind (just one point) was the Sex Pisteols – Robbie Stronach, Derek Adam and John Wilson – 5 wins. Third with 4 wins was the 3 Bears – Alec Davie, Gavin Hillson and Mike Watt.
The next Grand Prix is in Perth on 14 May.
