John Bremner. It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of John Bremner. He suffered a fatal heart attack on Tuesday afternoon. This has come as a great shock, John was a good man, who was not only friends with everyone but also a mainstay of the Seniors Section. A man who everyone was delighted to play with and to be in his company. He will be sadly missed. Our condolences go to Carole and all his family at this sad time. Johns funeral will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday 5th September at Peterborough Crematorium. Afterwards at The Bull, Market Deeping. If you plan to attend the wake please let Steve know so he can let Carole know numbers .

We were late off the first owing to a fourball being booked for 08.12 and a further fourball after them but no names!  We therefore managed to get off the tee at around 8.12, words shall be had with the management.
A toast was proposed to 'Bremner' before the meal by J.A. and a hearty round of applause given.
Ali Scott arrived for the meal with his shorts and a rubber rain mac because he forgot to bring a change of clothing.  He was dealt with in the time worn fashion!
