NEBA SUMMER PAIRS FINAL
Thirty pairs competed in this year's Summer Pairs final at Stannington.
At the break, Steve and Georgia Ray on 69% were well clear of 2nd place Dorothy James & Judy Creswick and last year's winners Jaqui Taylor & Geoff Parker who were lying in 3rd place.
In the 2nd session, despite Steve & Georgia having another steady round of nearly 60%, they were pipped into 2nd place by Inga & Neil Aiston who had a very lucky run of results that produced a 2nd half score of just under 75%
