Roll Up Report – 16th October 2018

Hi Everyone

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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:

Three-card Brag
Position Name Net score
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
3rd Tim Hoiles 121
Peter Wheeler 121
Rod Forder 121

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.
