The 3rd Jurassic Blitz took place on the 30th January with another excellent turnout of 14 players. The tournament had a very close finish with 4 players ending up on 4.5/6 - a four way tie. With the number of winners exceeding the number of prizes it was agreed to play a sudden death 3 min playoff to whittle the 4 down to 2 and Steve Dean and Paul Hampton both from Seaton managed to win their games to take the prizes.
