Originally I had booked the golf day for same date as Association Cup and then on the Anzac Day long weekend and obviously had to cancel both. The third time lucky booking was for Sunday 1 May 2016. Unfortunately it still didn't suit some but we had 12 people wanting to play.
I laid awake at 3:30 on Sunday morning listening to the wild windy weather and rain thinking I don’t really want to cancel this golf day again and especially since having prepaid, bought the barbecue food and didn't really have time to notify everyone to save them a trip.
The wind played havoc on some of the shots, taking them to faraway places, at least that was some people’s excuse.
It was nice to see some brought along friends and partners and Claire’s friend Jen, who also happens to be Jilly Adams' cousin, will now have her name on most of the trophies. We were sorry not to see some of our regulars, Harry, Pete and Sue Woollard, Brian, Caroline, Phil and a few others. Oh well, maybe next year. The placings were:
Ladies nearest to pin Jen Marshall
Mens nearest to pin Peter Crossley
Ladies longest drive Jen Marshall
Mens longest drive Peter Crossley
The winning team with 72 points was Mick Culhane, Claire Tasker, Jen Marshall and David Casley.
Many thanks go to Alan Watkins who came down and cooked the barbecue.
And, many thanks also go to Chris Mazzotta from Troubleshooters for donating a bag of goodies.
