The course was in excellent condition and set up well thanks to the hard working green staff. Food was available all day thanks to Kerry, Wayne and their staff which was very much appreciated.

Thanks also to Lady Captain, Gill Paddon, Penny Lyne (lady vice-captain) and all the helpers, including Lester Wilmington, (club vice-captain), for registering the entrants, taking meal orders and selling raffle tickets as well as checking the returned cards ready for the presentation.

The winning visitors (East Devon) were James and Patsy Colvin. David and Linda Smith were in second place and John and Maggie Harvey were third.

The home winners were Michael Hobbs and Ali Godwin, second place Paul Godwin and Lynsey Spooner and third place Neil and Sheila Faulkner.
