East v West v North of Scotland 2017

3-4 June 2017, Meadows

The East won the annual friendly between the East, West and North of Scotland.  A total of 59 games were played overall, well up on previous years, on a mixture of full and half-size lawns.   Both singles and doubles were played, AC and GC and for AC both 14 and 18 point games.   Time limits were strict guillotines in order to ease the problem of lawn allocation, hence the drawn games.

West of Scotland Championship 2017

30 September - 1 October 2017, Knightswood

The really awful wet conditions leading up to the West of Scotland Handicap Championship resulted in the event being reduced to a single day event.  Lorna Dewar with three wins and one draw deservedly won the West of Scotland after being undefeated.  As a result of the weather the tournament was played using the Egyptian format with 18-point games lasting two hours.  Most competitors had four games on the Saturday but some withdrew after two of the lawns developed standing water and were unplayable.  It was possible to conclude the event with a final played between Lorna Dewar and Jamieson Walker (last year's winner).  Despite the conditions Lorna played really well and completed the final on-time and ended up winning 18-5.
