Welcome to this the first online roll-up report that I’m sure you have all been waiting for – not!!! Nothing really changes, however, as we start with the inevitable announcements.
- As both Richard and I are away for the next two weeks [what planning I hear you say], Bill Baker will be stepping into the breach. It is not the easiest of tasks at the best of times, so would you please give Bill a bit of space during registration and save any queries or points you wish to make until after the event.
- The numbers wishing to play in the Awayday now exceed thirty, so if you have not yet expressed an interest and wish to play, do let Laurence or myself know [yes I will process Emails while away] or merely sign-up using the sheet on the Seniors’ notice board. For those of you that have signed-up already, would you be good enough pay the fee ‘as soon as’ now so that Laurence can sort out the finance, etc. – many thanks.
- So that you are aware, one of the most popular matches on our calendar “Seniors v Ladies”” will take place on Monday 1st October. If you would like to play would you please confirm your interest by using the sign-up sheet posted on the Seniors’ notice-board, and final one:
- A reminder about the Celts v Sassenachs’ match being run over the 29th/30th September. Again, a sign-up sheet has been posted but this time on the Mens’ notice board, and the good news is that it’s open to 5-day members provided you make a £5 contribution to the chosen charity.
Enough of this I hear you say, and so to the all-important results:
There was no BoB winner this week so the pot rolls over to the 13th, while in the roll-up where the cut-off handicap was 20 and over, the winners were:
|Eclectic – 6th [and final] Round|
|1||2nd||Roger Bates||10.0||40 c/b|
|1||3rd||Peter Pitts||18.6||40 c/b|
|2||1st||John Ordish||22.4||42 c/b|
|2||2nd||Gordon Blake||20.5||42 c/b|
|2||3rd||Ian Bensted||26.3||42 c/b|
|2||4th||Barrie Layfield||25.2||42 c/b|
What this gives in terms of the overall competitions, is:
1st place with 61-points Dave Roberts
Joint 2nd with 58-points Brian Stepney & Nick Tomaszewski
4th place with 57-points Rod Forder
Congratulations to all our winners, and next week we have another exciting competition for you in the form of the Morgan Pairs – for the benefit of the uninitiated it will all be explained on the day, which weather-wise promises to be rather like yesterday.
I now go to pack the bucket & spade – so at least it will be quiet for a couple of weeks!!!!!
