He told him to put the 50p in the left side and the pound in the right. Press and hold. He didn't get to add "put the basket under first" but Andrew beat him to it! ....... no need to say any more.Wednesday 8th MayBy mutual consent, the match against Burghley Park was abandoned when all had played nine holes, owing to the inclement weather. Phil Hunt and myself agreed to halve the match.I thank all the players for even turning up on such a foul morning. Jerry Jolly gave us concern when he had still not arrived by 09.00 but apparently he had a blockage in his back passage and had to travel via a different route. At least I think that's what he said.Andrew Counsel locked his car keys in the boot in an attempt to avoid paying but Alison rushed a spare set to him before he had chance to eat and therefore had to pay up, to a tumultuous cheer!Ann and Rose did a great job in the halfway house but when I asked if they had lots of food left, apparently the lot went - even Rosie's own piece of cake. We then had a much earlier lunch, thanks to Simone asking Chris to bring it forward. Big thanks to all staff.The next inter club seniors match will be on Tuesday the 21st May, away to Melton Mowbray. Thursday 9th MayFollowing the wash out for the match on Wednesday the weather looked a “little “ more promising for the roll up.
