The club took a small group down to the Dorset Open on the 25th October. Our competitors were Callum Walker, Alex Walker, Neo Botha, Jim Rate, Michael Digby and Dean Digby.
It was tough day with several of our competitors carrying minor injuries or having had recent colds, and this was reflected in some of the performances. Michael Digby unfortunately had to withdraw injured during the 2nd round of his first match whilst winning by a point, and Neo unfortunately injured herself at the event prior to the match and despite competing bravely was not able to show her usual spirit and speed! Alex lost his semi-final 2-1 when he played stronger than for sometime and was unlucky for some scores not to go up. Performance of the day was from Dean Digby. Competing for the first time for several years, he convincing won his division, 5-0, to take our only gold of the day.
This was our last tournament of 2009, we will now be focusing on training and preparing for 2010.
