Division 1 winner: Max Turner. Max scored 94% from 9 games; no other qualifying player managed 80%.
Division 2 winner: Stuart Skelsey on 88% beats out Gary Cornwall on 87%. Gary can feel aggrieved about running into Mick Riding in Division 2, but Stuart can point to a perfect score as a guest star in Division 1. Stuart and Gary were miles ahead of 3rd place.
Division 3 winner: TBC, as Asa Bayram, George Ellames and Peter Wells all have an interest in the outstanding Gateshead-Alnwick match.
Special Leaderboard Award: Paul Edwards, who didn’t play quite well enough in Division 1 or quite often enough in Division 2, but comes out with 8½/10 if the divisions are combined.
Endurance Award: Tim Wilton-Davies and Alan Welsh. Please come back next season?
Beachgoers should be aware that the recent warmer waters may attract larger than average marine life from the Mediterranean.

Upside-Down Award: Eddie Czestochowski. 100% score in Division 1, 57% in Division 2, 0% in Division 3.
Symmetry Award: Andrew Lawson. 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats.
Talisman Award: Jeremy Revell. 2 wins, 2 draws, 2 defeats, and in all 6 of those matches the team’s result was the same as Jeremy’s result.
For The Flag! Award: Mike Smyth. 4 times ended up on the losing side despite winning his game.
Mic Drop Award: Anu Chandra. Played for Leam Lane Aces against Morpeth A, scored the full point to win his team the match 3-2, and retired for the season.
