Roll Up Roundup -31st July 2018

Hopefully after the recent rain you found the course a little more responsive today!

We were joined today by a new member, Richard Bramwell, and a returning member, Brian Mace – welcome to you both, and we look forward to seeing more of you!

To start with, a couple of reminders:   Next week [7th August] is the last date for entries into the Knighton Trophy to be run on 14th August – if you haven’t already entered/paid please do so by next week to allow Bill enough time to sort the draw.   Paul [in the pro-shop] has also asked me to remind you all that he is placing an order for a second batch of the Seniors’ branded clothing, so if you’re interested please get in touch with Paul ‘as soon as’.

Of course the ‘big event’ last week was our Summer BBQ, and fortunately we held it on the Friday as the weather turned inclement the following day.   Thanks again to Richard for putting together such a great evening, Jan & Tony [Dyet] for organising the raffle & putting competition respectively, one-half of the Swanny Lane Duo for the entertainment, and not forgetting Carole and the team for the catering  – well done one & all.

And so to the results:   No BoB winner again this week so we roll-over to the 4th next, a mere ‘bagatelle’, I hear you say!!!   But we did have a winner for Nick Tomaszewski’s ‘nearest the pin’ competition – Keith [I can never reach the green] Arlott.   Nick is running another round next week with all proceeds going to the Marie Curie charity, and yes it is also our chosen charity this year, but Nick’s raising sponsorship for a separate event, so please give generously.   As to yesterday’s main event, the results were:

  Team game “2’s & 3’s”  
Position Name Net score
1st Mark Baker 102
  Ian Knights 102
  Richard Tucker 102
2nd Keith Arlott 93 c/b
  Roger Bates 93 c/b
  Phil Eltham 93 c/b
3rd Phil Figgins 93 c/b*
  Stephen Sands 93 c/b*
  * as pair, adjusted score used  

Next week is the 5th round of the Eclectic, when the weather is forecast to be boringly fine again albeit the breeze may be up to provide a little more of a challenge!
