was set high early in the day by the Insubiz team headed up
by Soren Hundeball, who collectively racked up several net

Reidís, Argyll and Bute Consultants team were hopeful of
finishing in the prizes with a 57 despite an average inward

it was David Rankinís, Papa and the 3 Bears who mounted the
best challenge to the leaders who were next in with a 56 to
take second place followed by the Largieside team in 3rd
place by virtue of a better inward half.
evenings prize giving took place in a packed clubhouse
hosted by Club Captain, Bob Tait and prizes kindly presented
to the winners by Dorothy Tait.
