The Ted Barrett Yardstick final was contested for the second year running by Brian Firth and Ian Jackson. As the competition implies a point is awarded for bowls within a yard of the jack. The competition is over 21 ends and the winner is the player with the most shots. Sadly for Brian Ian was on great form and the final wasn't as close as the previous years. Ian won 13-4 after only 17 ends. Many congratulations to Ian and once again commiserations to Brian.
