Megafinal Entry details

For those qualified for the Megafinal the schools will be sending a letter home with a form attached for completion. Please bring it back into school as soon as possible (before Easter please as places are limited). Once this is done and you have confirmed participation I will sort the entry out for you online. If you could confirm here when you have received the letter/form that would be very helpful.

Last Chance Saloon Results - 7 more qualifiers (13 in total)

Today we had the Last Chance Saloon (47 players), as the name describes the last chance to qualify for the Megafinal at Saddleworth school which will now be on Sat 12th May. Another remarkable day.

We now have 12 qualifiers (6 today to go with the 6 already through). We have 6 from each school. 

  • Lawrence Moustafa swept everyone aside with ease to win all 6 games.
  • William Hardman-Elliott and Alex Hollingworth both won 5 out of 6 to also qualify.
  • Congratulations to Austin Butterworth and Lucy Lowe who both also got through (just) with 4 out of 6.
  • Jacob Hunt even though he didn’t reach the 4pts also is through as the best year 6.

Poor Dylan was in a final round shoot out with Lucy Lowe, with the winner going through (very tense especially as Lucy and Dylan had travelled to the event together!) Isaac Blabo in his first competition showed great maturity to score 3.5 but missed out by 0.5 as he had to play Lawrence in the last round!!!

Great effort from Curtis Cresswell and Ewan Finnegan in their first event.

Qualifiers

  • St James – Alexia Clancy, Lucy Inglis, Ayaan Iltaf, Lucy Lowe, Lawrence Moustafa, William Hardman Elliott
  • St Thomas – Austin Butterworth, Maddison Smith, Jacob Hunt, Ethan Lancaster, Alex Hollingworth. Moustafa Dia.

Great news!

Great news. Mr Laskey has agreed to pay the £15 entry fee for any child that qualifies for the Megafinal. The schools are very proud of how the children do in these competitions and want to show their continued support. Not sure how we will achieve this yet, I need to speak to the schools to find out.
