UNPLEASANT weather conditions made scoring difficult at Settle this weekend for the first medal of the new season.

There were exceptions however, with former captain Craig Dinsdale producing the outstanding round of the day.

Dinsdale's (82-12=70) gave him the best gross score of the day by a comfortable four shots.

John Read was his nearest challenger with his nett 71 putting him in the the runners up slot.

Mike Elstub continued his return good run of form, returning a very creditable nett 72 to finish in third place.
