Reporter: Ailsa Malneek

Hello winter….she is sure making her presence felt, the home fires haven’t stopped burning since 1stJune – just remember there are still trailer-loads of wood available from the club for the bargain price of $250 delivered – give your details to Sue in the office.

Grumpies winner last week was Alan Eagle on +4, 2ndDavid Marsh on +3, 3rd Bill Gordon on +1, 4thPeter Price on even. Twos were Brent Mortensen, Chris Handley and Terry Blacktop.

Ladies golf was rained off so no news from them, their HPMC round has been re-scheduled for 26thJune.

The sun came out on Thursday and over 40 players joined in the fun. 1stJohn-Dean Smith 40, 2ndSandy Bidwill 39, 3rd= Paul Weeks (Hawkestone) and Colin Whibley Smith 38, 5th= Stu Taplin, Sheldon McNamara, Rob Coy and Mr & Mrs Gumboot; twos Colin Whibley Smith, Bob Schofield, Gumboot, Andy Morison, George Kirk and Malcolm Bridge – nearest the pin Gumboot.  Captain Morison had a significant birthday recently (I know we all said he looked amazing for eighty too), and shouted the bar – thanks Andy…happy 70th!

Coming up this Sunday The Ngahau Trophy and Grandma/Grandpa tournament – divisions for non-geriatrics too!!  Make up your own fours or be at the club by 10am to go in the draw – tee off at 11am – entry fee is $20 per person.
