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 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.
