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|
|1||3rd||Ray Duckett||12.0||34 c/b|
|1||4th||Stuart Bambury||19.0||34 c/b|
|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: https://carswellseniors.com 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.
