HOMETOWN TEAMS SURGE
June 20, 2002: Thursday
the (mostly) Edmonton team NOWLAN put 5 strong results together
yesterday and moved handily to the front of the pack. It is no surprise
that LAWRENCE (aka McIlwain) sits close behind in 2nd. TODD sits
in 3rd. The Maksymetz team had a rocky rocky day, and fell to 11th
place. 6,760 more cards to turn in this event however - lot's of
time for miracles. It is interesting to note that in Flight A only
6 teams qualify beyond the round robin (not 8) and the first 2 get
a bye to the semifinals. The last 2 spots in the semis will be decided
by a playoff involving the teams that finish 3 through 6.
the CWTC, BCs ADACHI had a huge day going 23, 23, and 25 in
three matches. This was no accident - two members of this team have
won the CWTC before (Adachi, Gold) and went on to represent Canada
in a World Championship. SHARP didn't fare nearly so well on yesterday's
cards, falling to 5th. Event Chairperson Kismet Fung's largely hometown
team, CROSBY, sits in 2nd, and another Edmonton team, GIRVITZ, in
3rd. 3,432 more cards to turn in this event - but 3 teams can do
no better than 15. The top four teams at the end of today's play
will advance to the Semi-Final (64 board match). Please note that
misc scoring errors in the CWTC round robin charts have been corrected.
the CNTCB, with 3 matches left to play, it is difficult to pick
1-4. BC's CHAN holds a single VP lead over PULLES and his Saskatoon
foursome. YURKOWSKI from Winnipeg and SODERSTROM from the Ottawa
area round out the top four.
