On Saturday, August 25, Wilbur Harris and Greg Huggins fought out the first semi-final of the Minor Singles Championship.
Greg started strongly and after four ends lead 8-2 but Wilbur scored thirteen shots on the next five ends to open up what proved to be a winning lead, 15-8. Greg tried hard to get back into the game but Wilbur maintained his lead and eventually drew away to win the match 31-18 and advance to the final where he will play the winner of the other semi-final, either Guy Ellery or Gary McPhee.

Over the next five ends, Keith and John scored twelve shots to be five in front with six ends to play. Col and Gordon re-found form and with one end to play lead 22-19.

Saturday, August 25.
With the threat of rain and a strong wind blowing only ten bowlers braved the elements but managed to complete their games without getting wet.
Col Mudie and Jim Blake lost the first five ends but were able to defeat John Carr and Ray Jones 22-16.
The Triples match was close all day and with one end to play John Ward, Rob Irving and Gordon Dickson were level with Steve Mills, John Dunn and George Bradley – seventeen all. The last end was also very close and in fact needed a measure to decide the result and John’s team got home, 18-17, by about 3 mms.
Sunday, August 26.
The rain finally came on Sunday and no bowls were played.
