13 pairs competed for the SPA Doubles title on 23 August, held at Penicuik PC.
With no power available at Penicuik’s piste, it was back to pen and paper and a format of leagues (3,3,3,4) in the morning, followed by a knock-out for top 8 qualifiers in the afternoon for the main competition and a round robin for the plate.
The winners of the plate were the Hungarian father and son team of Rezso and Gabor Peli, narowly pipping Colin Montgomery and Bob Macdonald on points difference.
The placings in the main competition were:
1st – Paul Fletcher and Kevin Johnstone
2nd – Alison Swiffin and Ed Strachan
3rd – Robbie Stronach and John Wilson
Congratulations to the winners, in particular Paul who won both the Singles and Doubles titles over the weekend.
Next up is the SPA Masters at Perth on 12/13 Sep.
