The first Dukes Park summer merit of the season, an open singles competition sponsored by Hawthorns Caravan Park in Bempton Lane, had a large entry of 71 bowlers.

Because two excellent greens were available the competition was finished in good time. 
In the semi finals Andy Deighton (Dukes Park) beat I Lewis (Castleford) 21-19 while J Cooper (North Cliff) beat D Bould (North Cliff) 21-17.
The final was a thrilling game from the start with some excellent bowling from both men. It was won 1n the 19th end by home bowler Deighton 21-14.

The club president Gordon Scorah after thanking the helpers introduced Billy Holdsworth, who represented Hawthorns Caravan Park, to present the prizes to the finalists.
