With only two shots separating first from fifth, a tightly packed leader board ended with top spot going to Glyn Hewitt and Keith James with Phil Spencer and Roger Bawden in second and the pairing of Mark Laird and Derek Geear, taking third.

Also featuring highly were fourth placed Chris Ashley and Ken Price and fifth place went to Geoff Lory and Paul Blay.

At the evening Closing Dinner, after an excellent meal provided by Kerry Culshaw and her team, there were a few awards made prior to a generous raffle, which raised over £200 for the charity fund.

From the monthly competitions run during the summer, Barry Jones lined up with second and third placed Colston Herbert and John Hicks to receive his medal trophy from seniors' captain Chris Grubb.
