Kevin Gray beat defending champion Robbie Stanger 5-1 in the final to win his first Carling Kirkwall Open. Kevin had earlier beaten Wick's Tam Mulraine in the semi-final and Robbie beat Michael Bain in the other semi final.
Debbie Tait lost out to Tam Mulraine in the quarter-finals and received the prize for the furthest progressing lady on the day whilst Keith Bain received the prize for the furthest 'B' player after beating Ryan Tulloch in a play-off. Both players had made it to the last 16.
A record breaking entry of 122 players took part in the competition from Orkney, Shetland and Caithness. Many thanks to all who played and to all the sponsors involved.
