Roll Up Roundup – 22nd May 2018

A very eventful day on Tuesday what with Gotzl & Geko matches teeing-off in the lead-up to the main event; the roll-up featuring the over 70’s & over 80’s Veterans’ Cup Competitions.

However, a more disconcerting matter to deal with first:   I was advised after the roll-up that a shot was fired into the [15th ?] green while a greenkeeper was working on it!   I would hope that the culprit was not a senior member, but if it was can I point out the obvious and say that this is not only discourteous but could be bloody dangerous, and as a minimum would ask that a full apology be made the greenkeeper in question.

Moving on to more pleasant news, the results:   There was no BoB winner this week, and so next week we progress to the 13th – now what could be easier than that!!!

As for the roll-up, the results were:

Individual Stableford incorporating Veterans’ Cups
Group Position Name H’cap Score
1 1st Roger Bates 12.0 39
1 2nd Bob Howard 18.0 37
1 3rd Ray Duckett 12.0 34 c/b
1 4th Stuart Bambury 19.0 34 c/b
2 1st Tim Hoiles 24.0 36
2 2nd Peter Metcalfe 22.0 35
2 3rd Arthur Strain 25.0 33
2 4th Laurence Waters 26.0 32 c/b

And the all-important [but yet to be ratified] Veterans Cup results were:   Over 70’s winner Roger Bates, and:   Over 80’ winner Doug Jackson.

Congratulations to all, but particularly Roger & Doug, and not forgetting Ken Beal who celebrates his 84th birthday today – Ken doesn’t win a trophy, but he was presented with a humungous slice of coffee cake instead!!!!!

I’m leaving the reminders for our forthcoming events for you to find on the website: but one brief appeal for raffle prizes to be used at the Seniors Open [5th July] and the BBQ [27th July] – anything expensive would do!

Next week it’s another qualifier, the second round of the Casuals & Division 1 Cups – i.e. club handicaps and full tee positions will apply, so best take it easy over the bank-holiday.

Enjoy the weekend.
