Week Ending 8th February 2020 Apologies. Dear readers, I would like to apologise for thedelay in publication this week. Unfortunately on hearing of the problems at the club the web site publisher on my computer refused to load up. Rectification has taken a little time, with a little aid from the manufacturer we are now up and running again. Tuesday 4 th February. Week 12 of the Winter Stableford, and members were greeted by a very wintery icy blast, the coldest we have experienced all winter. The wind must have been felt because scoring was very much lower than it has been recently. Saying that there was a big run on”2’s”, nine people shared the pot. Several members of the committee had a quick preamble to try and sort out an agenda for a proposed EGM which we hope to hold on Wednesday 19 th February. This will be to decide what we do with our assets. More information will be forth coming. The days results. Division 1 1 st place with 38 points Bill Murray. 2 nd place with 36 points John Phipps. 3 rd place with34 points Ian Rice. Division 2 With the score of the day 40 points Bob Matthew. 2 nd place with 38 points David Nelson. 3 rd place with 34 points a.c.b. Mark Webb. 2’s Competition The winners in the hole in 2 competition were: Charlie Laverty (17), John Killin (17), Kenny Windsor (15), Rob Matthew (17), David Nelson (17), Ron Jenkins (15), John Rudin (7) and Nick Lewis (4).

John Adkins and Andy Parrott got the ball rolling by beating Graham Purslow and John Hastings 3 & 2. oooOOOooo Thursday 6 th February. Forty members took to the fairways for todays roll up, the weather was unbelievable, wall to wall sunshine and very little breeze. Scoring was good and in some cases was alarming as will be shown. Important Notice. Please note that the proposed Seniors E.G.M. for the 12 th or 19 th has been postponed. The Main club is holding an E.G.M. on Sunday 23 rd Feb at 2p.m. which of course senior members may attend. It was felt that there was no point in holding our E.G.M. beforehand, particularly as Simone will be updating on 23 rd . So, we now propose to hold our E.G.M. on Wednesday February 26 th at 10 a.m. There may be a chance that there will be some concrete information available by then. Today’s Results The winning team was made up of: Mike Gamble, Dave Rippin and “Suicide” Counsell. With a score of 87 points. Best Front 9 ……. with a great score of 23 points, Barry Malthouse. Best Back 9 …….. with an even better one of 25 points, Mike Gamble. On the Course. Scoring on Ron’s card was hilarious. If a score is of no importance, the figure is replaced with the letters NBG. Any guesses? Tiger Woods was also entered on the sheet, to play with Charles Nevitte and Gerry McIntyre, but he failed to turn up, so they had to use the floater – Kenny Windsor, whose score was also NBG was therefore of irrelevance. Nice to see a few of the walking wounded in the club house today, Robbie Elliott, Colin Brown, Arthur Dethick, Phil Cuttle and others. Best of health boys. oooOOOooo Top of Page
