The weekend was a great success with dry weather and a good competitive spirit.,However, inspite of the best endeavours of IC Captain Bill Gowans, the IC of GB were the eventual losers being beaten by a very solid IC of Germnany Team led by Wolfgang Popp who regain the Dunlop Trophy from the IC of GB.
