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!
