First place went to the team of Cheryl Baker and Wayne and Brenda Edwards (skip) of Parksville. Second went to Jan and Stu MacNaughton and Jim Muir.

Continuing the top three sweep was Parksville’s team of Roberta Stets, Keith Baker and Rick Dolley (skip). Nanaimo’s Rick Quibell (skip), Mary Mulligan and Lynn Chwartacki took fourth.
