Lincoln Flickers Flats Championships Sun 26 July

Post by Jaypeedee » 17 Mar 2015, 12:57

The second running of the above comp had to be postponed last October because the date chosen was too close to that of the TSPA's national flats championship. I am now hoping to hold the competition later this year, in May, June or July. However, before I settle on a date I thought it would be a good idea to assess the level of interest in a flats tournament in Lincoln. Therefore, without asking for any firm commitment at this stage, I'd simply ask you to respond to this post if you would be interested in principle to taking part in such a competition. If you would, I'd also like to know if you have a preference as to month (May, June or July) and timing (Saturday from 11am, Sunday from 1pm, or Wednesday evening).

Equipment used and rules will be the same as for the TSPA national championships and there will be teams available to borrow on the day for players who don't have their own.

John,
Yes I am up for this if the timing is right!
For me it would need to be a weekend date, avoiding the weekend 13-14th June. I would also need a lift down so would be relying on my very good friend John Bottomley no doubt!
Hope it comes off this time mate!
Mike

Thanks to those who've responded to this post, either by commenting or PM-ing me. It seems everyone favours a weekend over a weekday night, and Sundays are marginally preferred over Saturdays. With that in mind, and keen to avoid clashes with other competitions, I've provisionall set the date for our Flats Championship for Sunday 26th July commencing at 1.30pm at the Morning Star pub, Greetwell Gate, Lincoln LN2 4AW. I stress the word "provisionally" as the date is by no means set in stone and I would welcome feedback from any prospective players before I confirm the arrangements with the pub.

Entry to the competition itself will be FREE OF CHARGE. However, if enough people want it I can arrange for the pub to provide a buffet lunch for which obviously payment, probably in the region of £5 a head, would be required.

The twice-postponed inaugural Lincoln Flickers flats championships took place at The Morning Star pub, Lincoln on Saturday 23rd February 2013 with a mixture of “professionals”, “amateurs” and “novices”. There were eight players in all, and the draw was conducted completely freely, without seedings, meaning that, as chance would have it, the two strongest flats players in the competition found themselves in the same half of the draw and ended up facing one another in a semi final.

Players:-

Jez Boothman (Melton Rovers)
Dave Collett (The Perry Barr Pets)
John Devaney (Moston Torpedo)
Colin Fletcher (Uncovered FC)
Gary Keech (Sabwab United)
Brian Kinrade (Hango Hill)
John Turpin (Romsey Town Rangers)
Stuart Walsh (Wayward Wanderers)

Results:-

QUARTER FINALS

Uncovered FC (0) 1 Melton Rovers 0
Wayward Wanderers 0 The Perry Barr Pets (0) 3
Hango Hill 0 Romsey Town Rangers (1) 3

FINAL

PLATE FINAL
Uncovered FC 0 Romsey Town Rangers 0 [Trophy SHARED]

CONSOLATION CUP SEMI FINALS
