Nearest the Pin 2006

The previous few days' mist cleared in perfect time to ensure the weather could not have been better for our participation in the Leith Festival Gala day on Leith Links on Saturday 19th June.

The winners of the different age groups were :
Adults: Frank Shields
15-17: James McCreadie
Under 15: Michael O'Donnell

(Frank is actually a left-handed golfer having to play with right-handed clubs, making his victory very merited)

Approximately 80 people took part, ranging from age 6 to over 70.
