As the name of the competition implies a point is awarded for bowls within a yard of the jack. The competition is over 21 ends and the winner is the player with the most shots. The final was contested between Brian Firth and Ian Jackson. This was a very close final as after 14 ends the score was level at 8 all, but on the 21st end Ian picked up 2 shots to win the final 12-11. Congratulations to Ian and commiserations to Brian. A great final.
