** The team representing Otley in the third division of the Yorkshire Union Team Championship, were rewarded for their commitment by finishing in sixth place in a heavily curtailed event. This will mean promotion to the second division to be played on 12th July. The inclement weather in the earlier part of the week directed focus on home soil to the Gentlemen’s Medal and the Rabbits’ Chairman’s Prize. The two competitions were combined and produced some good scoring amongst the higher placed finishers in each division. George Muscroft, playing off scratch, won the first division although it was the Gents’ Captain, Brian Wilkinson, who won Stef Kowalczyk’s Rabbits’ Chairman’s Prize. Medal results were:-

 Div.1   G Muscroft (0) 68; S Blears (6) 68; Simon Hawkins (10) 68
