"The last Adult Ranking event of the year sawt 24 players in the tournament listing – 16 men and 8 ladies - with another couple or so more added on the day.

An eight game play-off to qualify for the final cut to six men and six ladies to move onto the knockout final competition.

The event was run single handed by Adam Oughton started on time and ran to time with no real technical faults to mention. A big tribute to the latest Technical Boss Simon Goodege.  From the off the lane conditions looked to be high scoring and it was a strike fest for almost everyone with only a few exceptions.

For the Men Sam Rose opened with 279 but the real on fire player was wild man Leon Devlin who led the field for the eight games to total 1970 – Super smooth Curtis Hooper was the next closest nearly 90 behind with 1881 – then Matt Hall was flying with 1860 including a 289 game – fourth the Old Master Steve Thornton 1815 – then home Romford player Lee Cocker 1812 – and Essex Boy Miles Corney 1782.

A great 278 in the final game got George Ackermann to almost make the cut but he fell just short of it on 1778.
For the Ladies Autum Chamberlain started out as she carried on with a 248 to end on 1834 – Hayley White after a slow start first game punched out for a series of great games including 267 and 279 to be just one pin short of Autum on 1833 – the rest of the qualifiers were Annaleise Vokes 1680 – Katrina Maciver 1638 – Romfords Tracy Wallace 1562 – and finally after a good run of strikes in the last game was Angie Brown 223. The unlucky one not to make the cut was local Romford YBC girl Gigi Chan 1541.
So onto the Knockout Finals and the top two players in each division had a bye to the semi-finals and the other four played for their position in the semi-finals. Each match was two games and total pinfall to win.
In effect the games progressed in front of the watching crowd and the full story is in the scores as shown below. The long and short of it was that all the finalists played well and could have all beaten one another from game to game and the event was enjoyed by the competitors and the spectators."
