At Belfairs, the fine weather contributed to low scoring and close finishes in last week's competitions.
In the weekend's single bogey event, countback was needed to decide that Mark Duguid (5 up) had just prevailed from runner-up Ray Beadell with Alex Tindell (1 up) in third place.
The mid-week medal was another close affair, but Bobby Allan (84-66) just held on to beat off the challenge of David Watson (89-67) and third placed Michael Flynn (88-70).
The Essex Seniors Team were away to Risebridge and their match produced another nail-biting finale as Belfairs just held on to take the tie 6-5 and earn a home draw against Chigwell or Belhus Park in the next round.
The team of Mandy Moir, Hazel Webber and Alex Meddle scored 47.8 to win the Easter Egg Scramble
