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.
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.
Pedley 2018 Winner – Dave Wanless
for those that missed it, the full results were:
Colin Pedley: Winner Dave Wanless 41
Second Jerry Senior 36 c/b
Third Jeff Dixon 36 c/b
Fourth Peter Metcalfe 34 c/b
 Chris Smyth
Nearest-the-pin in two  David Stroud
Longest drive  Brian Reid
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.

had Brian said to upset the others???

Common’ It could only be Tommy Cooper
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.
