In the Net division the McInnes brothers from Nakusp took honors.  Nathyn McInnes took the 15 – 18 year old division with a net 67 and Dugan the 14 and under with a net 63. In the skill prizes Brenan Moroney and Braden McKay both dominated.  Both kids won the KP and LD in their age divisions.last_img
