After being hampered by a heavy thunderstorm the finals of the Champion of Club Champions Fours event drew to an early conclusion, after the required 16 ends of play to constitute a game, due to the extreme weather conditions which plagued large much of South East Queensland.

In the women’s competition, it was another awesome display of Gold Coast talent by Broadbeach’s Cassandra Millerick, Sue McKenzie, Dee-Anne Robertson and Bolivia Millerick who battled through the weather to finish the game 16-10 over Club Kawana’s Pauline Laverty, Marion Hewish, Noela Whitton who were skipped by Marilyn Emerton.
