The format of play was drawn trips of two games of nine ends each with different teams and opponents for each game. Prizes were awarded for the best Skip, Second and Lead of the day, as well as for the most touches achieved by a player.

A considerable sum of money was raised from players’ entry fees and the various fundraising activities which took place throughout the day. This included a Fines session, numbers board and a raffle.
