Hi all, in today's news...

The HB Masters was again a great success with visitors from as far as Whangarei and Kerikeri.
Some great results with club members featuring in all but one of the finals.
Snappa gave hint of frailty on the way through to the M1 Final by dropping games all over the place but pulled out the big shots when needed.
The all HB final looked to be going be an upset when Fiddler had game point in the third and 1-1 but he ran out of steam and the Snappa ran him down and polished him off in the 4th.
In the other local derby Devitt and Biddy faced off after various amounts of trash talk on social media.
In the end Matt proved that size isn’t everything and powered to a 3/0 victory.
Jeremy Graham was lucky to even be in the field, having forgotten about the event until issued a timely reminder.
He made short work of his opponent for a comfortable win.
Your beloved president surprised all including himself by surviving two 5 setters to make the final.
However, the first game was all he was able to salvage and went down 4/1
M1 Snappa d Fiddler 3/1
M2 Devitt d Biddy 3/0
M3 Jeremy Graham d Matt Tana 3/0
M4 John Tito (Whangarei) d el President 3/1
M5 Arpad Tolnai d Reanna Watson 3/0
