Captain's Announcements

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.

Winter League

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.

Upcoming Events

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.
