In the handicap section the Chairman’s team, made up of Burra trio Dick Cleland, Bob Perry, & Eddie “The Flying Dutchman Van Keulen plus Klaus Heymann of Peterborough scored a stunning victory with a net 54.875, 3.25 strokes clear of the runner up.

Particularly disappointing was the performance of the Burra #3 team which featured Summer specialist Philip “Thomo” Thomson and Shawn “Sheep” Rayson. They finished well out the running for any prizes except the encouragement award (Mars Bar) which they avoided by 0.625 of a stroke. This award went to the Peterborough #2 team of A O’Dea, A Borowiche, A Ranarwitz & G Kennewell.
