Rutland County Seniors travelled to Melton Mowbray for the return fixture in this year’s events. Our Captain commented “A beautiful day on a lovely course, in great condition, could not sadly bring us a win. The result was a 6 and 2 loss and he also lost his 100% record!” A side story connected to the match at Melton. Reported by Alistair Scott. Hoist by my own petard, comes to mind with this report. Having been picked been picked for the match against Melton Mowbray. I duly turned up at the appointed time of 08:30hrs, unfortunately I was at Rutland County and should have been at Melton. Cue for a substantial amount of abuse. In mitigation I would have had to drop in at Rutland to pick up my gear anyway _ _ _ another everyday story of the Senior Section.

All theories centred on Alan Weedon. It was thought to be an Air Ambulance keeping close station in case of emergency. Another thought was it was an Electricity ‘copter in case Alan’s buggy died and needed recharging. Lastly runours abounded that it was Alan’s getaway ‘copter jn case the old bill were to appear on the scene. You make up your own mind!!!! Top of Page
