The City of Frankston Bowling Club hosted the Peninsula Bowls Division Grand Final. In Division 1, Karingal Bowling Club and Mornington Civic played on The Show Green and in Division 5, Frankston RSL played off against Karingal on C Green.

It was alleged that the Show Green was running at 14.1 secs and C Green at 15 secs.

Champion bowler and presenter of the RPP FM Bowling Around The Peninsula program Pam Dind and her commentary team arrived early at the City of Frankston Bowling Club to broadcast the build up of the finals day to the humming of mowers and a roller grooming the greens. The air was misty with the faint noise of people chatting in anticipation of an exciting day of competition bowling.

Excited spectators arrived, gradually building up to 200 around the two greens to watch their players compete for the flag.

Then the games began.
