Second spot went to Wayne Johnstone, Preban Rasmussen, Dennis Debolt and Frank Sheare, with the final gross prize going to Bruce MacDonald, Cory Nielson, Jim Proteau and Gerry Fagan.

Third low net went to Gerry Blender, Clint Wilson, Joe Baker and Dennis Hillman, fourth place winners were Bob Price, Kevin Carlton, Jacques Giovetti and John Jones, with fifth place going to Wolf Suhr, Ned Stewart, Vic Carlton and Don McGowan.

Closet to the pin winners were Cal Davies on No. 2, Bill Barrett collected $49 for the Charity Closest to the pin on No. 4, Ron Clark  on  No. 13, Dave Gray on No. 17, and . Joe Baker for his second shot on No 11. The winner of the West Wind Pub long drive was Frank Sheare.

Fred Fredrickson presented Ann Evans of the Special Olympics with $ 700 that was raised through the Men’s Club Charity Closest To The Pin each week.
