This event is for the Western area of Southern England with the winners from this group going to play in a 4 team final later in the year. Dorset was not at their strongest with some of our County team missing in the final team of 10. which consisted of David Barton, Campbell Boal, John Hayes Mike Chapman, Phil Addis, Mike Mudford, Graham Taylor, Bob Dilkes, Paul Cooper and Senior's Captain Nigel Green. The course was in excellent condition and the weather held fair for most of the day after the early showers okay downpours!! All the players enjoyed the day, although Bob Dilkes has had better days as during the afternoon round he took a blow to the head from a stray ball from his playing partner Graham Taylor which gave the game to the Wiltshire pair as Bob ended up in Dorchester Hospital but all was okay and he got home safely and we hope has recovered fully.
The event was won easily by Gloucestershire who emulated last year taking nine point from their 10 matches Wiltshire took second place on 4 points with Somerset and Dorset tied for third slot.
