Roll Up Roundup – 4th December 2018

Hi Everyone

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:


Carswell Quiz (4)

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:


Yellow Ball
Position Name Net score
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.
