Fine weather at 4 o,clock in the afternoon greeted the pair of Greg Huggins and Tom Furey as they met George Bradley and Steve Nimo Mills to battle it out in the first round of the Handicap Pairs. These two pairs history goes back to last year where they met in the final.

After that, in a dominant performance it was all team Mcphee/Blake prevailing with for a 26-18 win.
