At Highcliffe on a rain sodden night the KO team had to win 4 and a half points to go through, as the hosts fielded some rather useful up and coming youngsters who were either ungraded or had a deceptively low grading.
Michael got his customary win without difficulty, John scored a very good decisive win against a very experienced player and Ivan, Philip, David all got draws, while Simon had a difficult night.
So we ended with 3 and a half points, one short of that required. We'll try again next year.
