Another overcast day saw 41 golfers take part in the open day on Sunday at Alberni Golf Course. I imagine the poor turnout was because of the long weekend.

On the net side it was Gerry White carding an impressive 63, way to go Gerry. Next, shooting 64 was Cal Davies, then it was Darrell Van Os coming in with 66, followed by Steve White and Glen Trask both shooting 68.
