Thanks to Dave Brown and company for a great day of crokinole. The tournament was well organized and the complimentary lunch was delicious. The semi-finals were Justin Slater (of Kingston) over Nathan Walsh and Ray Beierling over Matt Brown. The Quinte convention was in effect for tie breaking in the head-to-head matches. Although slightly more complicated than the Wimbledon Rule, the Quinte Convention is extremely fair and eliminates the advantage of starting second.
The finals were a repeat of the 2015 World finals with Justin Slater beating Ray Beierling in three games. (Where are you Brian Cook?) There was some serious rain on the trip home to Toronto.
