Liverpool was the best on the afternoon earning 46 points, good for third place at 137. Lunenburg ended up in second place at 148 and Bridgewater took 20 point on the afternoon to total 130 and fourth place.

The format sees two teams from each of the four South Shore clubs play a series of Saturday afternoon mini bonspiels. The tour visits each club once; Chester was the last stop. Rosters vary from one weekend to the next.

The teams play a four end game, take a break for socializing and lunch, then go back out on the ice for another four end game against a different team. Point totals are based on games and ends won, and points scored.

In Saturday's tilt, Chester was represented by Jim Mason and his team of Rose Clooney, Mary Raine and John Sheppard. The Chester Number Two team was skipped by Harold Britten. Renata Graham, Paul Green and Jan Moreside played with the Britten squad.

This was the first season for the event which was enthusiastically received in all clubs and is expected to return next year.
