On 3rd October the Gillam Trophy was contested over the Brownlow course by 62 pairs who had traveled far and wide to reach Belton Park on a clear, but windswept day.
Early scores suggested that scoring was challenging and that team Cairns who had booked their place in this competition in 2019 might prevail with 43 points! However, by the end of the day, the team of Mike Abrahamsen and Elaine Ducker from Cottingham Parks prevailed with a score of 44 points. The trophy was duly presented to them after dinner as they are unable to attend the gala presentation evening.
Prizes awarded to top 5 positions:

1 M. Abrahamsen / E. Ducker 44 £100 each
