A group of 9 Bairnsdale players made their 25th Annual visit to Merimbula on May 7th to play the regular social match. The four pairs played each other in the usual social atmosphere. Merimbula again too strong at 14 set to 2 but that did not deter from the social event.

Merimbula pairs - John Rheinberger & Sergio Coo, Grant Woodbridge & Paul Walters, Dave Pruckner & Geoff Metzler and Bob Warren & Dion Grobbelaar.
