Tuesday 25th June Monthly Medal, well done to the 12 members who took part. There were a couple of possible reasons why the turn out for this event was so low. One, no doubt several would have been recovering from the exertions of the weekend away day/night to Bar Hill and thought a Medal Competition was a step too far. Two, the weather forecast was horrendous, telling us that we were to expect wall to wall rain with thunderstorms for the whole day (these never materialised apparently). However, the competition took place and all but two of those who completed the course earned points in the Order of Merit competition. Results of the day. Division 1 In 1 st place and in great form since his knee operation, with a Nett 73 Andy Parrott. 2 nd place and roaring away in the Order of Merit, John Hastings with a Nett 75 3rd place with Nett 76 John Killin. Division 2 Returning a Nett 77 in 1st place John Rudin. 2 nd place with Nett 79 Pete Chippendale. 3 rd place went to David Nelson with a Nett 91. oooOOOooo Wednesday 26th June This week Rutland County were hosted by Greetham Valley, Stuat Butler our Vice Captain led the side as Steve is still not fit to play. His comments of the day …… A great day out on a very good course, although we lost 5-1, 3 of the matches we lost went to the 18th hole, so it was still a very good showing. Thursday 27th June The sun continues to shine for us this week, which attracted 40 members to turn out for the roll up, a fine total during such a busy week. There were also another 10 competing in the knockout competitions. It was good to see Steve in the club, showing some signs of recovery. The roll up today was a “popular “format, All to Count was the order of the day. The winning trio with a score of 101 points was : Best Front 9 with 20 points Mike Martin. Best Back 9 with 22 points Bill Murray. On the Course. Your correspondent (Alistair Scott) has been instructed to report that a 2 was scored today on the par 4 12th. A drive and a 5 iron from 140 yards apparently was the formula. The question on your lips is, “ Who is this player?” Well it was …. “””MEEEE!!!!”” (Alistair Scott). Summer Doubles Knockout results: Dale Pettitt & Pete Chippendale bt Mike Gamble & Mat Kunen and now meet Dave Wilson & John Killin in the Quarter Finals.
