Continuous Pairs round 5 and final results

In the final round of the Continuous Pairs, Norman and Linda won with 48 VPs, closely followed by David and James with 47, Marcus and Celia with 45.

The overall winners of the series are Jane Stirton and Judi Stevenson, with a total of 209 VPs (out of a possible 300). In second place were Marianne Alexander and Jean Wellsbury with 199, in third place James Vickers and David Beavon with 192.

The leading "non-expert" pair (no player ranked higher than NGS 10 at the start of the competition) were Jane and Judi, so the non-expert prize goes to Val and John, who finished 11th with 126 VPs.

The full ranking list can be found in the competitions folder. We intend to run another series soon if there is enough interest. Please let James, Linda or a member of the committee know if you have any comments or suggestions.
