The third in the Alan Burns tournaments 2019

The third Lacksidasical in the Alan Burns Grandprix took place at the Civil Service Pavilion on 14th April 2019.

The Alan Burns series of tournaments continued in the bowling club of the NICS pavilion. We had 12 players with a nice spread of ratings and a tough competition. The time setup meant that no game was overly rushed and hence the name - The Lacksidacials.

Overlooking the bowling green a very atmospheric view - contemplative.
