The always popular Winter Championship began its five round/six week journey on January 18, but quite a few club members were victimized by illness, leading to three of the eight games being postponed. The other five games saw the higher seeded player win. Byes dropped two more of the undefeated out of the second round competition on January 25, leaving top seeds Cam Leslie and Michael Cambareri as the only two perfect scores.
The event is being played at g/90 with a total of 15 entrants and two house players.
