Francis Drake Bowls played two triples in the final against Ladywell Bowls Club.  

The scores from the two triples were added together. While one triple had a tough battle but managed to hang on to lose by only one shot, the other had a slow start but then pulled away and led convincingly. 

The result was a win for Francis Drake by six shots over the two teams.

After the games, 98 players and spectators enjoyed a roast dinner and presentation ceremony.

Well done everyone who competed in all the rounds and a special thank you again to members who came to support.
