Wade wins all 4 events on this years Dewar circuit. She had to claw back from 3-5 in the third here. at 30 all Julie was only two points away from the title.Virginia uses the fast carpet to advantage in knocking off several winning volleys.
Virginia has entered every event but one on the "Whiskey circuit" since its inception in 1968. This is her 14th Dewar title and her 17th consecutive singles victory.
The future of the circuit is in some doubt, this year Torquay was controversially dropped.
#3 seed Marita Redondo withdraws because of tonsilitus. Ann Kiyomura fills in by virtue of winning a playoff over Sharon Walsh at Nottingham.
*Verify dates. Dolan has November 12-14.

FI: Dianne Fromholtz d. Janet Young ????
