Dianne Safford – Roger Fraser vs Bev Baxter- Frank Talarico On the glorious Anzac Day afternoon, Dianne and Roger won the first end, and they won a great 3 on the 5th end but by the 6th end Bev and Frank had drawn away to be 2 shots ahead . Frank and Bev were on a winning streak and determined to win as they had been runner up several times in previous years. Di and Roger were still in there fighting, winning 3 of last 5 ends played, but not by enough and as the game was only 18 ends they just ran out of ends.
