Fourteen pairs entered this competition, ably organised as ever by Ron George. Weather conditions were kind. The pairs were divided into two groups of seven, the winner of each group contesting the Final on the Sunday.
Saturday’s play was generally close enough that the outstanding games on the Sunday were needed to establish the finalists. In the first group, the these were Ron George (standing in for Eileen Keilbart) and Colin Hadley, with four points, but with Stephen & Margaret Read chasing hard, but not hard enough, with 3.5 points.
In the second group, two teams emerged with 4 points, Russell Moore & Dorianne Forsdick; and Pam George & Jenny Burrows. However Pam & Jenny had beaten Dorianne & Russell, so went into the final.
The final was watched by an attentive audience, basking pleasantly in the sunshine, and saw Ron & Colin proving a little too strong for Pam & Jenny, winning 10-5.
