The "2017 Staffordshire Pro-Am" was held in the Wolverhampton Electric Club and had the visit of Australia's Rick Bland from Brisbane TSC.

Justin Scott won the plate event and Cayne Matthews won the AM section. 6 Astroboards were used for the tournament and young Alex Scott competed in his event aged 11. Little Ruby Matthews once again proved what a future star she will become. Two radio stations and a regional newspaper featured the event which will become annual.

Adrian Elmer visits English players in Lowgate

Jeff Parsons sent us a report of Adrian Elmer's visit in the NETFA premises last week-end. Jeff told us players had a great day  he reports Adrian especially enjoyed his day and the competition. "A lot of good banter and exchange of ideas and you never know, the away leg in Sidney is always a possibility. We let Mike Parnaby win again with his demon conversion rate but one of us old ones still got a punch in. With the age handicap, I must be top of the WASPA ranking by now."

Standings of the evening:
1. Mike Parnaby
