After a wonderful first day of conditions, Mother Nature showed her side and brought ool winds, rain and a bit of lightning and thunder to make for a challenging day. Tournament Chair, Doug Gossoo blew the weather warning horn and cleared the golf course due to lightning being in proximity. Play was halted for approximately 30 minutes while the system blew through.
Upon the conclusion of play round one leader Len Filek of Summerland Golf Club was the Champion after firing a 2 over par 74 to match up with his 4 under par round one score. Filek was 6 shots ahead of his nearest challenger, Bill Persley of the Okanagan Golf Club.
The Overall Low Net Champion was Kelowna Springs, Brian McKay who had a 4 shot lead over Royal Colwood's Roy Johnson.
In the Super Senior Category the Low Gross title went to the Kelowna Golf & Country Club's Jim Greenlay and the Low Net went to Chuck Passmore also of the Kelowna Golf & Country Club.
