This competition was held March 22nd -23rd at Hutt Road for Handicaps 6+. Although a small field it was down to the last match to determine the winner. Both Patricia McGaffin from Millswood and Graham Nolan from Victor Harbor could have won. They finished with the same number of match wins, so it was down to hoops. Graham had the highest net hoop points and thus won the event. A big thank you for the team from Glenunga who managed the event.
