the day sponsored by Munro and Grigg Auto Repairs on Saturday.

a shake with a handy net 70, however was pipped at the post by Heath Paech with a slightly more handy net 69.
Troy Bates, with a net 70 easily captured C grade, with his nearest rival being M. McLay, a visitor from Avoca Golf Club, with a net 76.

Clay Southern took out the A grade nearest the pin, with a solid tee shot in the conditions.
Hitting greens was the least of some people’s problems however, with Ian Cox claiming the coveted Kevin Na Award for his memorable nine over par 14 on
