After a week off the competition schedule, this Saturday was the 3rd round of the Colonels/Metropole Cups. The sun made another appearance although it was a day of two halves, with the wind coming in stronger in the afternoon giving the later players more of a challenge. 86 members played, 40 competing in Division 1, the Colonels Cup and 46 in Division 2, the Metropole Cup.
Dave Pooley topped the score sheet in the Colonels Cup beating Dennis Brown on countback with 35 points, while Colin Garnett came out top in the Metropole Cup, again on countback from Simon Pain with 36 points.
In the Colonels Cup, Keith Hawke was 3rd with 34 points, followed by Ian McKelvey in 4th , Steve Buse in 5th and John Arnold in 6th all with 33 points. The Metropole Cup saw Phil Hoare in 3rd place with 35 points, John Glynne-Jones and Steve Cock in 4th and 5th with 34 points and Geoff Jones in 6th place with 32 points.
