Bruce (The Gnome) McMullen took third spot with 34 also after a countback with Crewy Cameron. The Gnome also won the NTO on the 6th.
The Thursday vets attracted a good field on Thursday with several visitors turning out to play, but it was the locals that took most of the spoils.

Saturday golf was washed out but small field hit off on Sunday, and the winner with a good 40 points was Sam Smith and to keep it in the family son Cooper Smith took second spot. Les (I’m in a hurry) Forde, after a brief trip to Darwin took third spot after a countback with Tiger Clutterbuck.
Captain Jon Izzard combined with Tiger to defeat Kevin Ward and Trevor (Fairweather) Wilson on the 23rd hole in their Rocky River match play.
I should also take the opportunity to welcome our new caterer Sirlene Pasfield to the club and I wish her all the best. Early reports are very promising and we look forward to a long and successful association with her.
