Sunday was another great day on the course, as the annual Van Isle Ford Scramble took place. We had a good number of players participating for the event.

The over all winner coming in with a score of 58 was the awesome Team of Steve White, Dane Thompson, Damian Dodd and Gerry Fagan. In second place recording a 60 was the team of Preben Rasmussen, Wayne Johnstone, Jim Proteau and Masami Hirayama. Third place honours with a 61 went to the team of Craig Acland, Keith Gauthier, Clark Crowe and Chad Wutke. Coming in fourth by retrogression shooting a 62 was the foursome of Steve Pointon, Bill Barrett, Dave Mann and Phil Anker. In the number fifth spot was the group of Sam Parhar, Ken Fong, Vito Caldarulo and Mike Rumney also carding a 62. The sixth and final prize shooting a 63 won by retrogression went to the team of Peter Mugleston, Ken Sander, James Weening and Gord Unger.

As the course was altered somewhat there were 6 Closest to the pins up for grabs. No. 1 was won by Dane Thompson, No. 2 was Sam Parhar, No. 4 was Dane Thompson, No. 6 was Wayne Johnstone, No. 11 was Mike Rumney and No. 13 was won by Steve White. The Charity Closest to the pin on No. 7 was won by Steve Pointon taking home $52.

Congratulation goes out to Al Wright who won the Smitty’s Restaurant gift certificate, To Vic Carlton taking home the gift card from Buy Low Foods, and Peter Mugleston who won the Westwind Pub gift certificate.

Many thanks to all our sponsors who contributed to the Van Isle Ford Scramble. Without your support this event wouldn’t be as successful as it was.

Next Sunday is an open day with the usual closest to the pins and money pots up for grabs as well as prizes for the low net and low gross.

Please book your own time in your own group starting at 7 a.m.

The following week Aug 30 is the Mac Five Challenge. This event is one of the most popular ones of the year. More about that next week.
