June 12 results
Stan's Army (252) marched to a one-point victory over the Steady Eddys (253). Bert Leeder, no doubt inspired by his recent meeting with Rory McIlroy, contributed a neat Net 35 to go along with teammates Jeff Robbins’ Net 32 and a Net 33 from our own Sam McEvenue.

In the Season Standings Steady Eddys (134) retain 1st place and Stan's Army (128) tuck in for 2nd. 

Ryan Amyot (33) and Chad Currie (33) shared the Low Gross this week. Michael Todd, at 34, is in third place.

Andrew Haefling (Net 31) and Jason Playter (Net 32) submitted the best Low Nets.

PINS WINNERS: $71 LPM #10 - Calvin Peters (16'), LPM #11 - Ken 'Slant' Morrison (16'9") CTH #12 - Jim Burlington (3'4") CPH #14 - Ryan Amyot (3'3") Keg  #15 - Michael Rea LPM #16 - Phil Carleton (28'9") CTH #17 - Brendon Haefling (3'4")

50/50 Winner: Bill Henry wins $93

Notable Skins: Tim Cox bagged himself a 'deuce of deuces' on #14 and #17 in SGF 5-7 to claim a tidy $61.50. Ken Harwood won his skin on #10 with a Par 4 in SGF 8-10.  

Season Low Goss and Net Average leaders:
Chad Currie is 'still the man' with a Low Gross Average of 34.
Michael Todd is in 2nd with 35.60
Steve Irving in 3rd 35.75
Ryan Amyot 4th 35.80

Mike McManus is Low Net leader, averaging 34.75.  Terry Duncan and Grady Linseman are close on his tail averaging net 35.

Good News, bad News for 'Lefty.'  Rob Matheson had a Hole in One on #8 in the Senior League this past Monday. Not only did he miss the huge money on offer in the Men’s League by two days, but the Senior League was cancelled before he completed the round. No skin! The good news for Lefty was there were only two players left in the bar to buy for when he got in, and he posted a neat 78 in deplorable conditions.

"Some like it hot but..."

Most golfers like it 'hot' but some of our golfers obviously like it wet. Brent Keeling made the biggest splash with his Low Gross 33 shot despite the weather conditions.  This followed hard upon by our regular pantheon of low grossers: Chad Currie 34, and Michael Todd 35. Other mudders of note and players having notable season PBs were: John Murdoch, Ron Glenn, Dave Alviano and Peter Morgan.

The Steady Eddys (347) were unbeatable this week. Brent Keeling's Gross 33 and Chad Currie's Gross 34 achieved this aided and abetted by a slew of low-netters: Tom Doherty, Pete Morgan, Logan Strauss, Dan Blackburn, Coy Kulich, Tim Cox, Wim Kruisselbrink and Bill Graham.

The Steady Eddys (103) have surfaced at the top of the Season Standings with Stan's Army (98) surfing into second. The Roughneckers, the previous season  leaders, have sunk to fourth. 

Rob 'Lefty' Matheson's lone skin on #17 in SGF 5-7 earned himself a tidy $96 that allowed him to replace Bill Douglas at the top of the Skin Money List.  

Dan Shaw 50/50 Winner: $75.

PIN winners were: ($62): LP #11 Bill Sipprell (14'4"),  CTP #12 Adam Barfoot (7'10"), CP #14 Don Grandsen (13'3"),  Keg #15 Dave Bedford, LP #16 Bill Sipprell (18'4"), CP #17 Jason Playter (10'8"), LP #18 Don Grandsen ( 27'5").
