BALUT SHIELD AWARDS NIGHT 01-Sep-2010

AND THE WINNERS ARE ….
After 23 tournaments, 115 games played by a collective 321 players, the winners are:

BALUT SHIELD 2009-10: TC (Phil Alexander) 108.60

BALUT SHIELD CUP 2009-10: Mrs Orange (Muntana Merrigan) 149

These were awarded at the Balut Shield Awards Night on 1st September which was attended by 28 Section members. The Fourth Balut AGM took an agonising 20 minutes to complete but we were well stocked up on sponsored wine and beers as well as a lovely buffet prepared by the Club’s Executive Chef Khun Laak.

Then we started the 24th tournament (No.18 was cancelled due to the Red Shirts Street Party) - Play was competitive and, of course, being the Awards Night there were spot prizes but it was easier to give them to Mac (Andrew McLean) ahead of play as he seemed to win most of them!

The winners on the evening were:

HIGHEST AGGREGATE SCORE: Kelly Alexander 530

HIGHEST SINGLE SCORE: TC (Phil Alexander) 147

And a mini bottle was awarded to Gorgeous (George Okrasa) for his magnificent 342 – George having a similar bottle from last year aims to collect the set next year.

In addition to Kelly (aged 9) winning on the evening we awarded all the other junior players present [Katie Alexander (Kelly’s twin), Sleepwalker (Carlos Romero Junior, aged 11) and Tom (Tomjakraphan Merrigan, aged 14)] with a B2S voucher to encourage them to read books in between playing Balut! Well done guys – we look forward to their playing at the Interport.

Our thanks to OUTRIGGER HOTELS & RESORTS for supply of the wine and CARLOS THE JACKAL for sponsoring the beer and to YES TECHNOLOGIES for the scoring system.
