In the two wood pairs Terry Law and Alan Hubble came from behind, and over the 21 ends won by 21 to 16 against Brenda Draper and Terry Crockett.
The men's singles final followed this where Max Hodges stormed into an 18-7 lead over John Hunter. Fortunes then changed with John clawing back to 19-19 but failed to stop Max taking the final two shots to reach the magical 21. The match lasted over two and a half hours and took 25 ends to decide.
Another nail-biter was next with the triples final. Nathan Watson, Ann Muggridge and June Walker took a 12-1 lead, only for Terry Law, Eddie Bebee and skip John Walkling to overtake them on the 15th end by 18-17. The early leaders held their nerve to take the title by 20-19.
The last remaining final played on Sunday featured the four wood pairs. Eddie Bebee and John Hunter ran into an early 9-1 lead, only for Terry Law, playing in his third final, and Charles Newman, the holders, pulling back to 10-9 after 12 ends. However they could match the eventually new winners as they finished with 21-12 score.
