A perfect game saw “Fly by Night” take the early lead, a point clear of “Speckled Hen” and “Whatever” in joint second. In joint fourth were “Terrible 4”, “Dambusters” and “Vikings”. Heading into the half-time break “Fly by Night” again registered a perfect game. “Whatever” were in second place with “The Canaries” and “Past & Present” joint third, “Noname” completed the top five.
Fully refreshed “Fly by Night” dropped their first points of the evening but still held a one point lead over second place “Whatever”, who in turn were a point clear of “Past & Present”. Joint fourth was held by “The Canaries” and “Daffy Ducks”. “Fly by Night” (Julia Scott, Sandy Boulton, Roy Scott and Ron Boulton) registered their third clean sweep to finish four points clear of “Past & Present” in second place. “Whatever” somehow ended in the top three despite not scoring a single point in their last game, joint fourth were “Noname”, “Middle Newbold” and “The Canaries”. Special mention goes to last place “Volunteers” (Barry & Judy Gardner, Gordon Chamberlain and Barry Sheasby), as the name suggests the team consisted largely of Air Ambulance volunteers.
