(pictured James Forster, 2019 Dorset Individual Championship winner – James was well into his Summer break, out of practice and only graciously entered late-on to help build up the numbers. He apparently shocked himself, the most, by becoming Dorset Champion – with a fine performance!  Ian Clark has the cup, which it is reported he did eventually pass to James after the photo was taken)
