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.

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.
