14/04/2015 - Season 27 Grand Final write-up! -
The Season 27 Grand Finals were both great events to finish a very close Season!
Terry Loftus was our overall Pro League Season Champion, beating Danny Poolman by a few hundred points overall.
The really close one was the Free League, with Paul Lord taking the Season out by only 29 points to Terry Smith! (8684 vs 8655 points!)
Congratulations to Terry and Paul for your great efforts during Season 27!
On to the Grand Final last Sunday, we saw 28 Pro players and 25 Free players fighting it out for the Grand Champion titles.
Congratulations to our winners at the Season 27 Grand Finals!
Chris Darling took down the Pro event, in a very close battle against last season's Grand Final Champion, and Season 27's Season Champion Terry Loftus, who nearly make it two final wins in a row! Chris picked up an impressive $920.25 for first, Terry $613.50 for 2nd, and Woodvale stalwart Peter Bles $511.25 for 3rd place!
Over in the Free League, we saw Marcus O'hara and Sarah Gane battle it out for first place, with Marcus eventually claiming victory and the title of Season 27 Free League Grand Champion!
Thanks for all the positive comments as to the structure of the day and the changes to the regular Pro events, we are very happy with how the new changes are working and it's good to see more players down at the regular events!
Don't forget, $42 out of a $50 buy-in is paid out in cash prizes in our regular Pro events! See you at Beaumaris on Tuesdays and Woodvale on Thursdays for these regular events!
