A reminder of Awards Dinner Dance on Saturday Nov. 19 and results of our final tournament

From: James Murphy
Hello everyone, The annual Awards Dinner-Dance will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 at The Manhattan Club on West 52nd St between 7th Avenue and Broadway. Tom O’Meara and Darren Talbot are again taking your reservations. If you haven’t attended in recent years, please make an effort to do so. Remember, you have already paid for your attendance in our Annual Dues. It is always a good night!
The final event of the year was held at the Links on October 29. An excellent turnout and a few season-long competitions were concluded.
Congratulations to Stephen Carey, who prevailed over Kevin Lynch in the B Scratch. Well-done Stephen! The 10 points Kevin earned for his Runner-Up finish did, however, propel him into a rare tie with Dan Curtin in the 2016 Player of the Year race. Both finished with 70 points and are Co-Players of the Year. Now they’ll have to send each other the trophy every other month.
Results of the tournament:

First place —Frank Finnegan 39 points

Second place— Jim Murphy 37 points ( 19 on back 9 )

Third Place —- Kieran O’Sullivan 37 points ( 17 on back 9 )
