Under beautiful blue skies, 14 players competed for the Four Bowl Singles Title. Everyone bowled two, 14-end games to choose semi-finalists who bowled another 14-end game. Jim Corr and Ted Crum then met in a final match in which Corr prevailed.
Congratulations as well to novice, Erwin Vista, who made it to the semi-final round.
