For the first time ever the Welsh Open was tied. Winners with 4 out of 5 were Durham 2 dans Alex Kent and Sandy Taylor, continuing Durham's dominance of recent tournaments. David Phillips (1 dan) from the Isle of Man also finished on 4, but had a lower SoS, so was third. Others winning prizes were: for 4 wins Edward Blockley (5 kyu Worcester) and Peter Timmins (9 kyu Shrewsbury) and for 3 wins and a Jigo, Roger Daniel (5 kyu London). 30 players took part and enjoyed the foul weather on Saturday and the usual brilliant Barmouth standard on Sunday. In between 20 people (players and partners) enjoyed a meal at the Min-y-Mor Hotel (the venue) on Saturday night.
