At 39, Mel Marcotte, Howard Connors and Jack Stewart gave our winners a battle. At 40 was Don Baer, Jim Reed and Ray Lynn, along with Loren Carlson, Ivan Pierce and Berwyn Svoboda, also Dave Raabe, Bob Lund and Tom Walker, and finally, Jerry Sommervold, Duncan McGregor and Bill Rasmussen.

The other birdies were scored by the team of Pete Berglund, Vern Christensen, and Ray Mount and the Dave Raabe team, one of our prize winners.
