A substantial number of people attended from both clubs along with partners which made it a social occasion too.

There were two competitions for participants, 'A Bowl' and 'Open Competition'.

Mark Baker was kind enough to act as Competition Judge for the event. Nobody envied him his task owing to the variety of items entered. It took nearly two hours of concentrated deliberations to arrive at the following results:

Open:

First place: John Turner

Second place: Peter Castle

Third place: Maggie Wright

Bowl:

First place: Maggie Wright

Second place: Tom Pockley

Third place: Peter Castle

Highly commended: Bob Hollands, Richard Haselden, Mike Knight and Dave Ward.
