Tuesday 27 th August Another scorcher, which did have an adverse effect on some of the competitors in today’s competition, having to leave the course early. It was the dreaded “Yellow Peril”, which started off with a field of 60. Unfortunately there were several people who cried off without informing the organiser, which makes it very hard work for the admin trying to sort the scores out in such a competition. Thanks must go to John Adkins and Maurice Arnold once again for carrying out these tasks today. Captains Notices. 1. Ken Jakeman and Stewart Picton had to leave the course early due to the heat. We hope they are both O.K. 2. Could those who intend to attend John Bremners wake at “The Bull” Market Deeping please add their names to the list in the locker room, this is to give Carole some idea of numbers for refreshments. 3. Good to see Rob Elliott in the club today, he hopes to be back on the course soon. 4. Another reminder for raffle prizes for next Tuesday, please let Ron have them a.s.a.p. 5.

Graham Purslow, Ken Jones and Pete Siciliano had the others. oooOOOooo Wednesday 28th August Rutland County Seniors travelled to Thorpe Wood today, they were a little disappointed that they played their match at Orton Meadows and not on the main course. However it made for a close match which the hosts won by 3½ to 2½. Our Seniors Captain was unable to play because there were no buggies at the Orton course, this did not go down TOO well. Thursday 29th August What a relief, the temperature was a lot cooler and there was a nice breeze making it a perfect day for golf. Just 29 members turned out for the roll up which was the old favourite 2 from 3. In the absence of our Captain the only notice was a reminder from Ron Jenkins. “Don’t be late for your tee time please”. RAFFLE PRIZES FOR TUESDAY . GENTLEMEN PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING THEM ALONG AS THE CUPBOARD IS BARE AT THE MOMENT. Results of today’s golf. The winning team with 84 points, just claiming the spoils by one point. Dale Pettitt, Brian Kirby and Dave Waddell. Best front 9 with 19 points was Steve Moss. Best back 9 with 23 points was John Rudin, just cannot keep him out of the prizes lately, certainly having a purple patch. Top of page
