We had a cast of nineteen on this day and the weather was sultry bordering on being muggy.  We played B and C nines off the yellow tees at Crystal Bay in that order (B nine was used for the count-backs).  The layout was in real good nick with greens slick on the front side.

Darren Slade took control from the first hole and continued in the same vein to post 41 points and take top spot from Alex Field via the count back system.  Coming in third six points back was JJ Harney, with JC Lhoste taking fourth position on the podium.
