The winners were Darrell Knight, Brian Ayto and Brian White with a net score of 59.8.

In second place with a score of 62.3 were Andy Edwards, John Batty, Alan Donaldson and Ian Thomas.

Third were Ernie Armstrong, David Wilkins, Graham Manton and David Ford with a score of 62.4.

The New Leader in the winter-long competition is Brian White with 39 points.

In second place with 37 points is John Wright, and in third place with 36 points is Alan Dolby.

The leaders in the Slack Goblet with 11 points are Ken Taylor and David Hamilton.
