Early Report from Southland Club NZ Puma Open

Warren Parry won the Southland Club NZ Puma Open men's singles last night in Invercargill defeating someone called Craig in the final. I presume it was Craig Ross from Canterbury. I only have a text at this stage. Hopefully I have more information this evening.
Peggy Wikaira defeated Rosalie Ritchie 5 to 3 in the ladies final. The finals ended at to 10 to 2 in the morning. They seem to like their late nights down that way. Only two players from the North Island are down there as far as I know. That is Peggy Wikaira and Bill Fergus. If you are from the North, Invercargill is the most expensive venue to get to in NZ. The prize money is good though. So if you can win you will cover expenses.
When I get some more details I will post them. Today they are playing the NZDC South Island Masters singles. At the conclusion they will play the mixed pairs which will be another late night for the players. Tommorrow its the men's and ladies pairs. It is a great idea to have the NZDC and Clubs NZ events over the same weekend. Invercargill is the only place this is happening at present. This will be the first NZDC ranking tournament since November last year.
I will be at the Des Heavey memorial mixed pairs today at West City either on the bar or playing. Check in is by 10.30 am. See you there.
