In Bronze 1 Division, Catherine Doherty came out tops with 33 points, while Lesley Oxenham was second with 32 points (c/b). Bronze 2 Division winner was Susan Hyde with 28 points, while second and third places were decided on c/b with Di Wall pipping Maureen Tollemarche to the post, both on 27 points.
