The competition was played on a round robin basis with two groups of ten teams. Each team played nine matches over the weekend and the winners of each group played in the final. Each match was over 8 ends and played against a timer. Three points were awarded for a win, one point for a draw and also a point for every end won.

The winners of group A were Ian and Janet Jackson from Cabrera LBC and the winners of group B were Malcolm and Jean Smallwood also from Cabrera LBC.

After 8 ends the score was level at 6-6 so both teams got one point for a draw. However as Ian and Janet had won 5 of the 8 ends and Malcolm and Jean won 3 the final score was 6-4 to Ian and Janet making them the winners. Many congratulations.

Barry Woods, who is a founder member of Cabrera and spent many years as President of the club, kindly sponsored the competition.

Many thanks to all the organisers and spectators who made this event the great success it was. The weather also played an important part as it was absolutely fabulous.
