It was a mild, sunny day with a slight breeze. 24 teams arrived for the 11am start. Two grass greens had been well prepared.
Today there was only one three-game winner; Moama (Barry Barbary (skip), Ken Donald, Brian Hill, John Ryan).
Two teams with two and a half wins played off for the runners-up position.
Runners-up: Kyabram (John Boardman (skip), Les Grills, Barry Evans, Ian George).
Third: Lockington (Roly Head (skip), Jim Harris, Geoff Shawcross, Kalvin Stout).
