Fifty-six players took part in the fundraising melee in support of the Pieman, Pete Hamilton, who lost his business in a recent fire.

  1. Nico Toyne, 5 wins, +43
  2. Barbara Johnston, 5 wins, +39
  3. Margaret Mordicai, 5 wins, +38
  4. Murray Johnston, 5 wins, +37

A total of $1,320 was raised.

To the players, helpers and supporters, a big thank for your generosity and support.
