Kathy Burns and Mick Wood were the Buxton Park B players who entered the winning enclosure when Fairfield B made the short journey. The visitors took the spoils as Harry Jones, Stewart Jackson and Janet Phillips all eased home.

Birch Hall had a nine chalks win over Youlgrave courtesy of good wins from Ryan Bancroft and Joan Carrick which just outscored Tony Carter's effort for the visitors.
The game of the night was the John Bancroft/Richard Partridge clash won by Richard at 19, thus ending John's unbeaten record and knocking him out of the Last Man Standing race which gave the prize to Peak Dale A block Richard Briddon, who put another tick in the win column at Tideswell.
David Wain and Ricky Silk strove manfully for the home side but Peter Bingham joined Briddon on the heavy hitting podium.
