The cream of women bowlers from Eyre Peninsula converged on Streaky Bay to vie for the Region Five Inter-Association honours. Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Southern Eyre Peninsula and Western Eyre Peninsula were the three Associations involved with each Association having six rinks of four players.
Despite trying conditions due to a vigorous wind which varied from north west to south west some unbelievable bowls were produced throughout the day.
Most rinks were very evenly contested although there were a few blow outs. Western Eyre ran out winners with 23.5 points, followed by Southern Eyre with 20 points and Eastern Eyre with 4.5 points.
