Once again, Shrewsbury hosted the annual national Open Tiddlywinks tournament last Saturday, in Kingsland Hall. Maths master Charlie Oakley's enthusiasm for the game encouraged three other Salopians to enter the tournament this year: James Humpish (SH LVI), Ed Thomason (R 2006-2011), and one of our Gappers, Dan Still.
After seven rounds, our participants' results were as follows:
|Dan Still||14 points||47||1585|
|James Humpish||8 points||56||1491|
|Ed Thomason||5 points||78||1385|
Dan Still is now the highest rated South African Tiddlywinker!
