As you will have gathered, the approach of the winter season and the end of our matches & competitions means competitions secretary, Bill Baker, can throw a few extra team-games into the roll-up calendar – and hopefully today’s choice didn’t over-tax your mathematic skills when scoring!!! But before the results, as you’ve probably guessed, it’s the announcements:
- Richard has revealed that Brian Reid is to be his Vice-Captain for next year. I’m sure that all members will join with me in wishing them both a very successful 2019.
- We now have some further details for the Captain v Vice-Captain match on 1st November: Coffee/tea will be available prior to golf, and a two-course buffet meal served after. As this is intended as a thank-you to members that have competed in the inter-club matches, we will subsidise the cost so that the entry fee will be just £5. The sign-up sheet is already on the notice board – and members that have played in prior matches and wish to play, are asked to indicate their interest ASAP
- The date of the pre-Christmas quiz-night has now been confirmed as 30th We are awaiting some further feedback from the clubhouse on the quiz night & the Colin Pedley, but when received full details for both will be posted in all the usual places – hopefully by next week.
- And finally, Ray Duckett has posted the R&A?USGA rule changes that take effect next year on the main [not the seniors’] notice-board in the locker room, and these will also be posted on the website https://carswellseniors.com and circulated to all members in the next couple of days.
Surprise, surprise! Not one, but two winners of the BoB this week, so congratulations to Ray Duckett & Alan Wilkins – next week we start again on the 13th. In the roll-up [as indicated a team game but in the guise of a card-game], the results were:
|1st||Ricky Braybrooke||132 c/b|
|Roland Syphas||132 c/b|
|Peter Ellen||132 c/b|
|2nd||Dave Wanless||132 c/b|
|Glyn Williams||132 c/b|
Congratulations to all our winners.
Next week we have another team game, a Texas Scramble, so a reminder to those entering the BOB to be sure to putt out – having first designated the preferred [scoring] ball, obviously!!! As for the weather – dry but a little fresher.
