The first East of England Masters was attended by 41 players and although the entries were small in the O35 and all the Ladies sections, was enjoyed by all concerned. With points (for the Men only) counting towards International caps, the three Tournaments to be held after Christmas, the South (Broxbourne), North (Pontefract) and Midlands (Grantham) are all expected to have much bigger draws. (The British Open and Closed will have double points).

Because of the different age group sizings, some were run on a round robin basis, others in the normal fashion. However, (for Regional Tournaments) only the Finals will be played on the Sunday in future!! Why, will be explained later*
