Laurie Wakefield won the B grade scratch via a countback with 86 off the stick, while Ron Hetherington’s 72 nett won the handicap event in the same grade.

Another countback was needed to sort the C grade scratch winner with Ross Smith winning out after shooting 93.

Rod Luyt shot the best handicap score of the day to win C grade with 69 nett.

Ball winners went to 75 nett.

Troy Thomson started his day off in fine fettle when he was nearest the pin on the Idlerite-Tyrepower 1st hole at 392cm.
