Their was a good turnout on Saturday (June 29) to mark departing manager Gordon Davidson's last day on the job after five years of excellent service to the club.
The quarter-finalists of the individual matchplay were found after second round matches off the blue tees were completed..
Play was delayed 40 minutes to let a hard frost thaw, although most of the sheltered No 6 green remained frozen despite a sunny day.
At the top of the draw, Paul Tunnicliff snuck a win over Bryan Ramsey by winning the 18th hole to draw level and then the 19th to claim victory.
Dave Huntley outlasted Dave Blake 2/1 in a see-sawing battle, while Phil Sellers was far too steady for Andrew Craig and romped to a 6/4 win.
Rob Willems pipped Peter Watson 1 up in a match where both players struggled but where Rob proved better on the greens.
Peter Green parred their last hole - the difficult No 3 - to edge Graham Eggers 1 up.
Keri Kotua showed solid form in thumping an out-of-sorts Lewis Wilson 7/5, while Andy Isle had a walkover after Paul McCrae withdrew for family reasons.
And at the bottom of the draw, Dean Goodman rallied late to down Elton Netto 2./1.
The quarterfinals will be held on July 13, unless both players agree to play it earlier.
They will see Paul Tunnicliff v Dave Huntley, Phil Sellers v Rob Willems, Peter Green v Keri Kotua and Andy Isle v Dean Goodman.

Next were the trio of Jason Lee, Rod Thomason and G Tijsen on 75, with another threesome - Andy Isle, Gordon Davidson and Winton Griggs - making up the top 10 with 76.
