2021 Peter Stuart Memorial

2021 PSM Open

Unfortunately, this year's event has had to be cancelled.
If you have paid your entry fee and want it refunded, please email Helen Milligan: with your bank details.
Alternatively, you may decide to take part in next year's event, which is planned for the Matariki long weekend, 24-26 June 2022. If you do this then you will save on any increase in entry fees next year!

Thanks to an anonymous donor, there will be additional Upset Prizes in each section in each round! $10 for the biggest upset - and sometimes maybe two prizes!

This will be held at the club venue, on 28-29 August. Please be aware that the tournament will only go ahead if the country is in Alert Level 1.
There is a dedicated webpage for this tournament where you may submit entry registrations online:
