Tuesday Tome 10th October 2023

There is a good turnout of Grumpies today – must be the sunshine tempting them out to play.

Coming up this week we have the Lamb & Chardonnay Ambrose on Friday teeing off at 11.30am.

Sunday is the Baarrbraa Trophy at Eketahuna – please let me know by tomorrow afternoon if you are keen to play.  Tee off is at 12.30pm so that you can watch the All Blacks.

Results from last week:  Last Tuesday 8 Grumpies went out to play but only 4 completed the round in very miserable conditions.
