Jeff                              David                  John

What a fantastic game was played for the Championship.  The team of Jeff Machan, John Duvall, and skip David Gardner gave up a 6 on the first end to the team of Bob Perry, Ron Rollick, and skip Bill DesBrisay.  The teams played on and after 14 ends were now tied.  The 2 teams flipped a coin and Dave Gardner's team had last bowl.  The front end of DesBrisay's team rolled their bowls to be 4 up when David Gardner came to the mat with his first bowl, he took the jack to the ditch and lay 4 ft away. Bill then delivered his second bowl which almost stopped but entered the ditch.  David then rolled his second bowl to within 2 ft of the ditch now holding 2.  Bill tried to wick off one of David's bowls but was unsuccessful.  Thus David Gardner, John Duvall and Jeff Machan were the Champions for this year. 
Second place went to Bill DesBrisey, Ron Rollick, Bob Perry
2 games went into extra ends and very close scores between the teams.
Third place (Championship Flight) Frank Souza, Darrell Jones, Bill Hardy
