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.

Thanks Fred, Clare and Howard for the compliments.  We really enjoyed hosting and thrilled by the turnout.

As Fred stated, the Quinte Convention tie breaker was implemented in the semi and finals to ensure fairness when tied after 3 games.  We wanted a system that ensured neither player would lose because they had one less hammer (last shot),  This system would reward the player a victory if they earned 3 or 4 points in a pair of games.  If the players were tied after the two games they would start with a new pair, and so on.  Clare pointed out a wording issue with the scorecards that caused a good discussion and we will revise for next time.
