The tournament this year was won by Lee Nisbet (Eastriggs) and Jack Harkness (Annan) who beat Sandy Kilpatrick (Easglesfield) and Daniel Pool (Annan) in an exciting and close-fought final.  There were some excellent performances by other players particularly the juniors from Beechgrove, Castle Douglas, New Abbey and Thornhill.  Both last year’s finalists returned this year, but were eliminated in the round robin stage.
