SEASONAL AWARDS - last of our 2020/21 season trophy awards
These awards are based on players performances/improvements over our July to June season, each has its own set of qualification criteria, please refer to the “special notes” below for additional information.
THE STANLEY CUP – the last scoring session for this trophy was on Monday the 28th June, (a point is given to every player finishing in the top 3 positions on Mondays and Thursdays).
This last session resulted in our season long time top 2 highest scoring contenders finally ending up matching each others points tally.
DON DAVIS drew level with ANDY WOODWARD so they will share the honours and trophy this season.
THE 50th ANNIVERSARY IMPROVER PLATE – this uses only your scores from Wednesdays, (last scoring session was 30th June) and compares this seasons Wednesday average to last seasons average as a %'age improvement. Only members with an EBU National Grading System score of 7 or less at the start of our season and have played in 10 or more sessions each of the two seasons will have their scores compared to determine our highest %'age improvement winner.
This sees our award go to – GARY THOMPSON, Gary's improvement was over 9%
(…. and only just a smidgeon more than Alison's as our second best improver).
THE PAT DUNHAM IMPROVER TROPHY – Like the “50th” trophy this compares this seasons performance with last seasons performance, however all players are eligible.
This trophy is based on using only Monday and Thursday scores for comparison with a minimum of 10 seasonal qualifying scores required, (note – the last qualifying scoring sesssion was 28th June)
This sees our award go to – BRIAN WOODALL, Brians average improved over 9%.
(Several other players had significant rises in their averages including Ashok, John M, Marilyn M and Alison).
WELL DONE TO ALL OUR WINNERS
SPECIAL SEASONAL RELATED NOTES : we of course have played all this 2020/21 season only online, starting off with playing via BBO on Wednesdays in June.
Uncertain at the time how online play would work out, we decided that we would allow Wednesday scores to contribute to the Stanley Cup and Pat Dunham trophy scoring until such time as Thursday play was in place when it would replace further Wednesdays scores.
Monday online play started in July but Thursday play did not commence till November.
