2011 CAI Silver Medal Carrickmines, 2-3 April

Ed Cunningham regained his hold on the Silver Medal Invitational after Andrew Johnston's two year unbeaten run in the event.
Fine weather, nice lawns and very firm/tightly-set hoops challenged the 6 players. Despite the hoops and the early date in the season, 16 triple peels were recorded in the 29 games played = 55% which is a high percentage.

Simon didn't start well on the first day, so it was always a two-horse race between Ed and Andrew, however Ed banished the ghosts of previous years losses to Andrew and beat him 2-0 this time around to win back the title. Simon played much better on Sunday and got four nice triples. Kieran and Danny each had good wins over Simon. Thanks to Carrickmines C&LTC for their facilities.
