Congratulations to Damien Miller and David Quigley who won the Zone 8 Champion of Club Champion Pairs played at Wagga Rules Club over the weekend.

On Saturday afternoon they defeated John Salter and Barry Smith (Batlow) 17–14 and followed this up with a 22–15 win over Ian Cooper and Warren Charlton (Junee) on Sunday morning.

In the final they were opposed to Bruce and Trevor Firman from Temora. In a very low scoring game the scores were level at 13–all after the standard 21 ends. The umpire was called to decide the shot on the extra end with Damien and David winning the measure and the game 14–13.

They will contest the state finals in this event at Ballina at the start of October.
