On a good day weatherwise the morning blocks saw a couple of surprises. Bottom
ranked Eddie Chung beat top seed Peter Tofield to win their group, but with
both progressing. Two of the other groups had three players on just one win,
the closest with identical net hoops Peter Adams unexpectedly losing out to
Izzy Pointz 7-5 on the head-to-head.

The afternoon knockout saw Eddie Chung and Peter Tofield progress to the Final,
both with two close wins, but Eddie prevailed once again by winning the
Final 7-1!

The Plate Final saw Andrew Wilson get ahead of Colin Spencer until he was
pegged back to 5-5, only for Andrew to go ahead once again 6-5. With Colin's
first ball up in front of hoop 12 Andrew hit his second ball full length
through to win.
