Josh Morris and Linda Rendell claimed the day’s NAGA trophies.

Played in conjunction with the Christmas Competition was the 2018 NAGA of NAGA Competition.

A list of 26 possible contenders, who qualified throughout the year, was kept under wraps in an attempt to avoid possible abstention and collusion.

The field for the NAGA of NAGA’S Trophy event, the event that no one wanted to win, was reduced by almost half.

Those who did take part and joined the spirit of the event tried their very best not to take out the trophies crafted for the event.

At the end of the day the rest of the contenders played better than Linda Rendell, who took out the ladies NAGA of NAGA trophy while Rand Wilson won the men’s.
