For the prizes offered on Saturday Mr Taylor and Mr A Robertson, Percie, tied for first and second places. The playing off of the tie proved the most interesting of the days proceedings. Result as follows; winner - A Robertson (handicap 9); second - James Taylor (scratch), Rev. C Dunn (scratch); D Smith (12); J J Mackenzie (scratch); Rev. D Stewart (18). A prize offered by J J Mackenzie, captain of the club, was also declared a tie between A Robertson and James Taylor, the former winning.
