Well, 26 players took up the challenge for the Moooving Rapid on 16th Oct. Ben Hague with a pick fence score stood out from the crowd - well done Ben! Noel Pinic and Daniel Han came in 2nd and 3rd overall with 4/6. Richard Dare took out the 1st in B grade also with 4/6. Joy Shu Yan Qin and Alphaeus Ang came 1st and 2nd in C grade and Qi Le Kong-Lim and Nicole Qin came 1st and 2nd in D grade. Congratulations to all players, especially the support from the out of towners - the $540 total prize money must have been an attraction! The event ran very smoothly and the venue worked well.
