The 'people's pro'Gerry Fagan files another installment of Alberni Golf.

The low gross for the day was 74 shot by Sam Parhar,  the low net in the low Handi Cap division was won by Tyler Ruel who carded  a 70. The  high Handi Cap division winner, also with a 70, was Gary Korven.  There was only one skin won in the low H/C division and that belongs to Glen Trask who took home $85.  In the high H/C division winning $27.50 each for their skins were Brian McKay, Bill Bjornson, Bob Matlock and Chris Owen.

Next week is the Par Points competition, with tee times start at 8 a.m.
