Reigning premiers Ulverstone showed the rest of the league that they were still the team to beat again this season with a brilliant 53 shot defeat of Wynyard winning on all rinks.
The massive win was set up by Sam McLean , Tony Sutton, Rhys Saward and Geoff McLean who completely eclipsed the Damien Symes rink 34-11.
Eden Moore well supported by Ben Fidler, Fred Lee and Lee Pearson was not far behind McLean winning 30-17 over Grant Crowe.
Rodney Horton won 25-16 and Colin Willcox finished 26-18 in front of John Neal.
South Burnie did not let the loss of several of last season's players deter them.
They ran out easy 30 shot winners over a disappointing Devonport Country Club102-72 .
Josh Appleyard commenced his season with his new club with a 32-20 shot margin over Clinton Steers.
Cameron Windram asked for and received good back up from Vauhan Eaves, Geoff Todd and Tom Duff to enable him to score a comfortable 20 shot win over Ian Moore and Luke Richardson finished 22-17 in front of Tristan Bakes.
It was left to Mike Higginson, Ken Anderson, Ken Fogg and Dave Eglin to salvage a rink win for the Eagles 23-16.
As predicted a depleted Port Sorell side still managed to put pressure on Burnie eventually going down by 18 shots.
In a high scoring game Aaron Jago worked hard to defeat Tony Simpson 31-29.
This was to be the Sharks only rink win as Josh Marshall went down to Jeremy Turner 18-26.

Latrobe who apparently do not understand what getting results in by 7-00 PM means had a comfortable 19 shot over Penguin.
Greg Douce defeated Shane Stansfield 29-18.
Tim Douce won 25-19 over Julian Brown and Garry Courtney won 24-21 over Cameron Griffiths to give the Demons 3 rink wins.

It is timely to remind clubs that result sheets must be emailed to Boxer and to the CEO as well as the Advocate and Examiner by 7pm on the day of the game at their venue. I will not chase up results.
