Many thanks to Fred Fredrickson and his committee for all their hard work in making this season as successful as it was.

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.

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.
