Friday night saw the Juniors vs Adults match. This was the ultimate in grudge matches, with the adults determined to show that they were still the dominant force in Canberra and that the ďunder ratedí juniors stuff might work for NSW adults, but Canberra adults were tougher. The Juniors on the other hand were out to prove them wrong (as juniors always do).



We didnít have enough adults for 30 boards, and a surplus of juniors, so held a reserves tournament Ė I donít have the result for Josephine and Amy, so if someone could give me the missing result that would be good.



The juniors were strong at the top (the super juniors as Ian Rout call them) and at the bottom, but it was in the middle that the adults dominated. The first part of the evening saw fairly even results come in, but then the adults had a bit of a break through racing to a 11-7 lead. The juniors started cutting this back and the score slowly changed to 11.5 to 10.5 as super junior results changed the score.



It was down to the last 2 games and new adults Shannon Oliver and Jeremy Reading were losing (or so the juniors said Ė Shannon denies it was ever true, although she was in a lot of time trouble, as was Miona and it was a complicated end game).



However Shannon and Jeremy pulled through to take the adults to a 13.5 to 10.5 win. Once again the night was played with good attitude and no disputes and everyone seemed to enjoy it.



On a personal note Ė I won -YAY! I donít win very often. However I am quite sure that if I played my opponent in the day, when he was not so tired, it would have been different.
