There was a good entry of 8 teams played on the 2nd October which was reduced to four at the end of the day’s play being Rob Paine Bruce Panther Bill Clode 2 lives and one lifers John Hodgson Selwyn Hargreaves Don Lilly, Marty Doak Toto Thompson Moss Hotere and Barry Allison Alan Thom Trevor Smith. The second day was abandoned due to the weather and was played on the 19th November in fine but windy conditions. The first game of the day saw John’s team force an extra end at 10 all against Rob’s team with Rob winning this and eliminating John. In the other match Barry’s team eliminated Marty. The next round was a final/possible final no time limit and 15 ends. Barry took a life of Rob in a very close match and then they played again in the final with Rob’s team reversing the earlier result and winning the right to represent the Far North RSA at the NZRSA Nationals to be held in Matamata in March next year. Thanks to Dawn for the catering, Moss for the green and Selwyn for Match Controller.
