Top two widen the gap

    Call me Blondie and Duo both won 8-4 and so the gap remains at 5 points. Their nearest challengers, Turkeys and Wilkos both only won 4 points and so fall further behind. With only 6 weeks to go the winners must surely come from one of the current leaders

    The Owls jump from 8th place to 5th after their easy 12-0 win.

   There were only four 500 series tonight, Terry Damm had the best score with 564 (633 with handicap) including two of the nights three 200 games. Keith MacFarlane had the second best handicap series, 602 and Elaine Standley was third with 593.

best split   Richard Lester converted a 2-7-10 split. Other good efforts were by Jackie Finch with a 5-7 and Julie Wilkins and Brian Grayson who both got a 5-10. Crunch Finch only just missed a big four, just leaving the 6 pin standing.
