16th Exmouth Seniors Congress Day 3 (04.11.2015.)

In all his 15 previous Seniors Tournaments, David Burt had to confess he’d never before been as high as Board 2, and nor could Michael Dow nor Marian Cox have expected to be flying so high, and it fell to me to be playing last year’s winner. But, like Icarus, we were perhaps flying too near the sun, and the force of gravity would surely reassert itself. And so it did. Even Colin Sellwood in the Juniors, after his dream weekend taking the heads of Johhn Wheeler and Steve Dilleigh in the space of 24 hours, fell to earth with a bump. 

Here are the Rd. 3 details, Seniors table first:-

Top boards in the Seniors: never has the bearded Dave Burt been as high as No. 2 in all his previous 15 appearances, nor Marian Cox as high as Bd. 7

 

Colin Sellwood (nearest) still on a high after his Rd. 1 win over Dilliegh.

 

The 2 Controllers - Ewart Smith (l) now enjoying his new role as player as Tony Tatam succeeds him.
