    The final award of the weekend was presented to our good Captain Duff who won both of the games which I and Dave Manley GM'd by a good sea mile and then added an extra five points by GMing the third game. This resulted in his name appearing on the Admirals Trophy for a second time to equal Dave Manley's record.
