Candra Archbold won her bracket to advance to the finals and Paula Murphy won a tie-breaker to reach the finals. Bette Cunningham was also it this tough bracket. Sandy Hudson also won her bracket putting three K-girls in the running for the England trip. In the end, Sandy won her fourth trip to the Winmau World Masters to be held in Hull, England. Paula finished 2nd and also qualified for the 2nd time in her career. Sandy and Paula both made their first trip together in 2008. Candra played very well in the finals and throughout the day, but she missed too many doubles in key situations in the finals. She was disappointed but happy to reach her first ADO National Finals Bracket.
Paula, Sandy, Candra and Bette would get to the finals quite a bit during the weekend along with Sandy Haas, Candi Ellis, Lora Josey and Marlise Kiel.
Paula beat Sandy in both 501 and Cricket Singles Finals. During 501 I noticed Paula's entrance music was playing so I walked up to her and said " how cool is this, your song "Smooth"is playing". She replied she asked the DJ to play it. I laughed then headed over to the DJ and got him to play Sandy's song next.
