In the exciting final turn of the game finishing after "time" on the Sunday, Andy Dibben came from a point behind to peg out, thus beating Phil Dunk and taking him to 5 wins out of 6. This gave Andy the trophy on percentage wins, ahead of Andrew Dutton, waiting hopefully on 4/5.

This 13-player flexible Swiss was played in excellent weather without time-limits till the final hour, the narrow handicap range (0 to 3) making for competitive play and plenty of upsets.

The prize for effort (bottle) went to Chris O'Byrne for his eight games and, after reaching the trigger on several previous occasions but each time slipping back, Jon Diamond at last hung on to get down to Scratch.

5/6 Andy Dibben

4/5 Andrew Dutton, Alex Jardine

4/6 Jon Diamond

3/5 Liz Farrow, Edward Dymock

4/7 Kevin Carter

3/6 Phil Dunk

2/6 David Boyd, Brian Havill

2/8 Chris O'Byrne

1/5 Steve Woolnough

1/6 Alan Clark
