Well Carol got the forecast right again and we had to suffer another weekend twiddling our thumbs.
The Annual Dinner was a great success, however, and I would like to thank all those who made the evening so enjoyable. Alasdair for the delicious food, Debbie and her helpers for looking after us in her normal inimitable fashion and to Jenny Benge for taking the photos. These can now be viewed on the website; a veritable rogues' gallery I can tell you! Click here to see them.
I believe a few hardy souls (there must be other descriptions) braved the conditions on Saturday rather than go to Tesco's. But despite the valiant efforts of one or two individuals, there was no change to the overall positions in the League and, can you believe it, my calculations were correct and Andy Morris was victorious. For information the top 10 positions were as follows:
Score Player 7th Card 8th Card
227 Andy Morris 32 31
James Chard 32 30
226 Graham Dickens 35 35
Andrew Garrad 35 34
221 Kevin Lewis
220 Ethan Cameron 34 34
Neil Hurst 34 33
Sandro Cioffi 31
219 Mark Watts
218 Oz Hassan
Well done Andy; it's a shame you're leaving us this year but we wish you well in the future. Full results here.
This Saturday is the Holm Oak Trophy. Presented in 2006 by Barrie Brannan, this is a four-ball better ball competition, so you are going to need a partner.
Bank holiday Monday, the 2nd April, sees the first of our mixed competitions. This is the Brasted Trophy, presented by Mr and Mrs Doug Brasted in 1968. It is a foursomes competition but don't let that put you off, it's still great fun (did I really say that!). Sign up on the board in the George Low bar.
The summer competition book is now open, probably for another two weeks, so don't delay putting your name down.
30th March. Fish and chip night.
7th April. Seafood Extravaganza.
20th April. St George's Night. Competition during the day and evening meal and entertainment.
27th April. Friday Night Live.
7th May. Charity Day.
I don't know what more to tell you, though I have one observation for you. The ladies seemed to have raised more than double the men in their respective charities. This is causing a certain amount of unnecessary bragging in the Dickinson household which I would dearly like to see the end of. I'm told that murder is not an option. Now I can only assume that everyone's golf has improved to the point that no-one visits the lake on the 17th anymore – or is it because it's been covered in ice!
Speak next week.
