A change in format to have 2 groups of 8 players catered for our interstate visitor Giuseppe Tardiota (Brisbane Subbuteo) to give players as many games as possible.

With the lightning 15-minute matches, those 7 group matches equated to 3 1/2 normal games and then a final ranking match.
Special mention must be made to Paul Mercer who created a brand new competition sheet to run the event, and to Tom and Janice from WIlloughby Park Bowling Club for arranging the space.
Things got off to a cracking start with Tony Credentino on fire against Johnny Ball (4-0), and Giuseppe also 4-0 over Billy Koutzas.
