The weather was very unkind to us with the first three or four holes, although not ideal, were playable before the heavens opened and the course became unplayable. However, the cast of 17 members made it to the 9th hole before calling it a day and returning to the clubhouse for a hot shower and a beverage or two.

The event therefore became a mini 9 hole competition with the results as follows:-
