Report 2016


The Maoral Mibsters
back row Kieran Blake and Rob Bryers
front row Zachary McCarthy-fox, Whitney Lapic, Barb Robinson, Councillor Chris Cheshire

This year the Mayor of Crawley, Councillor Chris Cheshire let us know that she intended to play in the tournament. I feel very horned that for many years the local Crawley Mayor has attended our international event.
The Mayoral Mibsters comprised Mayor of Crawley, Councillor Chris Cheshire and her Consort Barb Robinson, 2009 US National Marbles Champion Whitney Lapic, 2005 Tinsley Green runner up team member Zachary McCarthy-Fox and the duo currently travelling the world to see 365 sports in 365 days, Kieran Blake and Rob Bryers from Australia and New Zealand.
It turned out to be one of the longest tournaments this year and Zachary’s car headlights illumined the main ring towards the end. The clocks had not moved forward to give us an extra hour of day light and together with a few silly disputes and mindless niggles, drove me to despair and nearly ended my long association with the marbles.

Over time many of the teams have improved and are getting higher scores so you end up spending extra time playing games.
