The first year of this competition has been very difficult to arrange to play the Finals. The competition started 27th November for the Men and 1st December for Ladies. The bad weather in December prevented the final to take places and subsequently because of other fixtures it was hard to find a date. It was eventually played on 10th February, thanks to Chris Ivin and the Ladies Charity team kindly moving their fixture date. 

Both Men and Ladies put forward eleven teams with John Fitzgerald and Bryan Thompson (ALBC) winning the Menís over Alan DeBoer (John Dedman. (Indalo) In the Ladies Mo DeBoer and Doreen Hall (Indalo) over Sylvia Pritchard and Pat Deacon.

Menís Final

This was expected to be a close game with the excellent quality of play in the early rounds from all finalists. This was to be John Fitzgerald and Bryan Thompsons day as they never let Alan DeBoer and John Dedman get started. There was a mini fight back when John and Bryan couldnít get off score of 10 for five ends with Alan and John fighting back only to be two shots behind. John and Bryan then started pressurising again and in the end winning comfortably.   

Ladies Final

This was an epic final with all finalists playing extremely good bowls. There was nothing in it for eight ends with the score at seventh end, 6-5, to Mo DeBoer and Doreen Hall against Sylvia Pritchard and Pat Deacon. Mo and Doreen continued to increase their score with Sylvia and Pat fighting hard to be level on thirteenth end at 10-10. Unfortunately, Sylvia and Pat couldnít get off the score of 10 for the next 5 ends with the score at 16-10 for Mo  and Doreen on the seventeenth end, Sylvia and Pat then needing 6 shots on the eighteenth end to make a play off. Lots of excitement as they nearly did it, winning five shots thus Mo and Doreen taking the Championship.

After the competition, Tony Lear thanked all for taking part and the markers and umpires throughout and the presented the trophy to the winners.
