Season finale this week

Tuesday sees the 8th and final event of this year’s series, based at the Britannia Inn in Headington where we began in September. I hope that as many of you as possible can make it, not only for your final fix of street-o before the summer break but to support the prizegiving which will take place as soon as everyone has finished and the results have been worked out.

In the men’s class we have the same duel at the top as last year: John Owens already has the maximum 200 points and a head-to-head win over Ben Stevens, though if Ben wins on Tuesday and beats John in the process the trophy will be shared. Roger Thetford is sure of third place in the series after four second place finishes during the winter.

There will definitely be a new women’s champion, as Anne Edwards has already secured the title. The battle for second place is more interesting, with Carol Edwards needing to win to overhaul Marie-Anne Fischer. (Blanka could also capture second place in theory, but is otherwise engaged at the moment…)

See you on Tuesday!

    Thanks for an excellent Street O event last night… and the pub pasta meal afterwards was good too! Please let us know when the next series will start so that we can invite friends and family along; hope to see you at the Summer series events. Rich.

    I’m glad you enjoyed yourself. Next season will follow the same pattern, with one event a month from September to April, alternating between Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Actual dates will be posted on the site in the summer.
