Congratulations to the winners and runner-ups of the junior (1-5 year) open pairs.

In the men's division, the winners were Ron Burgin (Kensington) and Scott Morrison (One Tree Pt) who defeated Dave Smith and Mike Lee (Onerahi) in an exciting match where the last bowl of the last end won the match 16-15 for the Burgin/Morrison combination.

The semifinal was between Smith/Lee and Paul Price (Whangārei) combining with Keith Stewart of Mangawhai, Smith coming out the winner by 19-12.

In the women's section, Skye Renes and Maxine Nicklin (Onerahi) defeated Janene Thurgood and Karina Cooper (Kamo) in a tight match where the Kamo combination were in the lead until the 11th end.
