The Summer meeting was held at Buchanan Castle on Thursday 27th June. Summer it was not as most of the field endured a steady downpour for most of the day.
Spirits were not dampened however as the course was in excellent condition and the rain at least removed some of the fire from the fast and tricky greens.
Although not competing, the host Secretary Janet Dawson was a most attentive host and ensured that a warm welcome was provided by all of the attendant staff.
The relatively flat layout provided some respite from some of the more arduous layouts we have encountered recently which greatly eased the old bones of some of the twenty four competitors. Accordingly it was members of the 'older' variety who pushed the young brigade into the background on the day.
The day was topped off with an excellent tea and copious thanks were rightly offered by the Regional Captain to the Club.
The results were as follows;
|3rd place based on better back nine - Ian Gray with 32 points|
|Second place beaten on the back nine - Gordon Clarke with 35 points|
|Winner of the Gents Tankard - John Doyle with 35 points|
|Winner of the Ladies Vase - Kathy Stoddart|
