What a pleasure it was when our troops ventured into enemy territory to fight the battle of the Big Board. An away win is always a struggle but we overwhelmed St George and snatched back the John Kellner/Terrey Shaw Trophy.

We also held the Little Board when Harbord took the 2nd round by one point but fell short by one overall.

See HERE for the Big Board detailed results and HERE for the Little Board.
