Evidently, when the sun was shining this morning you must have thought it was spring as 49-senior members braved a rather chilly start – although not necessarily from the correct tee!!!!!!!
As I’m sure that you missed them last week, a couple of announcements this:
- The quiz night was a great success with some 58-guests wracking their brains over questions devoid of ‘soaps’, interspersed with a fine meal and the all-important Christmas Jumper competition – and did that produce some sights:
Who’s the chap in the garlic seller’s beret????
Many thanks to Richard for organising such an enjoyable evening, and Brian Reid’s team for winning the quiz – looking at his expression, do you think he knew something?
- On a rather more serious topic, the closing date for your AGM proposals has now passed, and the agenda together with any proposals received will be posted on the seniors’ website & notice board on/before 15th Remember, the AGM will follow the first roll-up of 2019 on 8th January, and there will be an optional buffet-lunch available at an extra cost of £8, and finally for now:
- Good news for some of you as the committee have decided that the Eclectic should be restructured for next year in an endeavour to accommodate more team-games during the summer months, more on this in the weeks to come.
As the expression [nearly] goes, you are waiting weeks for a BoB winner, and then several come along – well two anyway. Yes, we had another winner this week when Ian Nights produced a blinder on the 17th, meaning that we start again [again] next week, this time on the ever-popular fourth. While in the roll-up it was another team game, Yellow Ball, the results of which were:
|1st||Rod Maloney||82 c/b|
|Peter Metcalfe||82 c/b|
|Dave Roberts||82 c/b|
|2nd||Graham Brindley||82 c/b|
|Brian Rawle||82 c/b|
|David Stroud||82 c/b|
|3rd||Gordon Blake||81 c/b|
|Peter Ellen||81 c/b|
|Alan Wilkins||81 c/b|
Congratulations to this week’s winners.
Next week as a warn-up to the Colin Pedley we have another Individual Stableford, and if the forecast is to be believed, it will be sunny but chilly with light winds, I expect to see you in droves.
Talking of the ‘Pedley’, the cut-off date for entries is 11th, so if you don’t want to miss the action and/or the lunch and the all-important annual presentation of awards that follows, either come along to next week’s roll-up and register or get in touch with one of the committee – cost of entry is just £10 to include your golf, lunch & presentation.
All the best.
