GoRPS Rock Paper Scissors Championships in Birmingham

Following the action at the BMGA Star City Open minigolf tournament, and prior to the mayhem of the Laser Station Challenge on Sunday 23rd January a bunch of players waited in the Beach Road Cafe Bar playing pool and whiling away the 25 minute wait.

With some time still to spare the Guild of Rock Paper Scissors (GoRPS) arranged an impromptu RPS Battle!

With seven players competing it was Irchester's Marc 'The Roller' Bazeley who triumphed, with an impressive undefeated streak of 4 wins in a row, in the 'best-of-3-throws-winner-stays-on' format event!
