Leading the way with a score of 121 was the foursome of John Panagrot, Vic Carlton, Kevin Carlton and Jeff Vigneux. Next with 124 was the team of Sam Parhar, Jack Sparks, Tylo Smith and Dalton Moore.

In third place also with 124 was the group of Steve Pointon, Bill Barrett, Phil Anker and Dave Mann. Fourth place went to the team of Darrell Van’os, Cory Nielson and Jim Proteau.

The final prize was won by the group of Terry Rai, Peter Mugleston, Gord Unger and James Weening, carding 128.

Closest to the pin winners were on No. 2 Cory Nielsen, No. 4 and 13 was Vic Carlton, No. 17 was Don MacGowan.

The charity closest to the pin on No. 7 went to Jim Proteau.

Congratulations to Jack Sparks, who got a natural birdie on No. 5, which happened to be the hidden hole. He receives a gift certificates compliments of Cypress Restaurant at Chances RimRock Gaming Centre.
