Welcome to this the final newsletter of 2018, and possibly for some considerable time – I say nothing!!! So as well as reflecting on the Colin Pedley, there will also be a summary of the year’s awards, but first of course [did you doubt it] an announcement – but just the one:
The Seniors AGM, which is being held on 8th January following the first roll-up of the New Year and sustenance in the form of lunch will be available at a cost of £8, but please note: unlike with the Pedley this will be optional meaning that if you wish to take advantage either let me know in advance via Email or by using a sign-up sheet that will be in the clubhouse on the day – in either event, payment must be made to the clubhouse BEFORE starting your round.
The weather proved the most influential factor ‘on the day’ as strong winds and, for those with a late teed-time, the rain conspired to make in an interesting if not challenging round for all concerned. In the end it was the cunning ‘low-flight’ technique of Dave Wanless’ driving that paid dividends, as Dave won through with a blistering score of 41.
Colin Pedley 2018 Winner – Dave Wanless
And for those that missed it, the full results were:
Colin Pedley: Winner Dave Wanless 41

Third Jeff Dixon 36 c/b
Fourth Peter Metcalfe 34 c/b
On-course: Nearest-the-pin  Chris Smyth

The ‘Pedley’ was of course followed by a hearty lunch and our annual awards ceremony, and once everyone had refuelled & thawed-out, a generally good time was evidently had by all as the following images clearly show.

A Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all, and please give Richard & Brian all the support you can when they pick up the reins – you will have heard it before but believe me, it’s a pretty thankless task.
