The 2012 Champion of Champions was played over the weekend with active club members invited to participate.
On Saturday club members played round-robin competitions within each grade with the top players going on to a handicapped knockout competition on Sunday morning.
The club groups players into 4 grades based on ability so that all players are able to compete against other players of similar skill level. The morning round-robins were for B Novice and Intermediate, with A and A+ grades playing in the afternoon.
The following players emerged as the winners on Saturday:
- B Novice – Denis Evans, Mark Sharples
- Intermediate – Jim Petersen, Anders Herbel
- A grade – Steve Westby, Mitchell Boyd
- A+ grade – Wayne Pringle, Chris Shaw
Shaw was eventually victorious in the final on Sunday with a very close win over Herbel on the pink ball.
This marks a good run of form for Shaw, with excellent play the previous week against some of the top players in Queensland. Unfortunately Shaw was knocked out of the Chadwick Shield in a semi-final match against Ryan Cairney otherwise club members and spectators could have seen more of him next weekend in the finals.
