The final, after 9 qualifying rounds, was between
FREE (Jonathan Free, Michael Smart, Bob Sebesfi and Richard Douglas).
GUMBY (Pauline Gumby, Warren Lazer, George Kozakos and Ian Robinson).
After three of the four stanzas, FREE was leading 114.1 to 49 and the organisers were wondering if a concession may be under consideration. However, the GUMBY team persevered, and almost made a remarkable comeback, winning the last set 60 to 5.
The final result was FREE 119.1 to 109.
