As the sun continued to shine and the games progress Geoff Watson and Steve Dover (Whitby) lost by two points to Derek Swift (North Cliff) and Joe Hobson (Dukes Park) 21-19, while the home pairing of Tommy Donald and Shirley Dolphin beat Ed McCormack and Pat Germaine (another North Cliff pair) with a score of 21 -17.

By late afternoon Swift and Hobson began to dominate the final game resulting in a good win for them against Donald and Dolphin.

Thanks were given to all who attended to make a good competition and another successful day for Westgate BC.
