Vogue take another league win

Vogue PC played North Inn A in a very wet evening match at the Star Inn, St Day, on Monday 14 August, beating the Pendeen visitors by two games to one.

In the first game on the waterlogged terrain Vogue's Lena Daddow, Paul Lumley and Andrew Jarvis had a 13-3 win against Richard Lapworth, Mark Hypponen and Arnaud Ruetsch for North Inn A. In the second game Paul and Andrew were joined by Barbara Brown for a 13-0 win.

North Inn A made a comeback in the final game with a 13-11 win against Lena, Paul and Andrew.


Simon tops the Singles - again!

Coaching Inn PC's Simon Penna won the Kernow Singles competition, held yesterday, 13 August, at the Star, St Day, taking the title for a fourth time.

Simon won the title last year and previously in 2012 and 2013 and now equals the four-wins record set by David Lynas more than 10 years ago.

Runner-up was Vogue PC's Andrew Jarvis, who lost to Simon 4-13 in a tense final. In the semi-finals Andrew beat Roy Pemberton (Coaching Inn) 13-8 and Simon beat Mark Hypponen (North Inn) 13-2.

Mark and Roy played off for third place, with Mark winning 13-4. The plate competition was won by Pete Lynas, with a 13-4 victory over Tim Dyke (Tregony PC) in the final.

Turnout for the event was very disappointing, with only 13 players taking part and too few women for a separate contest. Lena Daddow (Vogue PC) was the highest placed female player.

A big thankyou to Andrew Jarvis and Pete Lynas for their efforts in preparing the Star terrains.
