The weather conditions were wet and blustery making the scoring perhaps more difficult than any other competition day this season. With a full field of members supporting Club Captain Dave Gallimore it was hoped that everyone would not only survive the arduous conditions but also be able to hold a good score together when one of the frequent showers descended up on them.
At the halfway house there were few good scores to talk about although Liam Hancock and Steve Matthews had amassed 20 points at this stage. With the more difficult closing holes to contend with the winners of the Divisional prizes and the Overall winner were still unknown.
The Captain and his wife Jackie had provided a variety of pies, pasties and oatcakes as well as the traditional choice of beverages. These were served by the lovely Marilyn Boulton, Jean Eccleston and her daughter Kirsty with a smile on their faces as the “banter” with our gentlemen members continued throughout the day.
With the conditions getting better for those who had the later tee times it was probable that the Divisional Winners would be completing their rounds late in the day and that proved to be the case.
The Captain says “I would like to thank everyone who has played in this event today and particularly those people who have supported me in putting this day together. From Dave Brookhouse who has sorted the hole in one prizes for me, The President John Carr for taking photographs at the presentation, the ladies in the halfway house, Jen Flavell and her team, Greens Staff who have done a great job all year and of course Greg, Jake & Liam in the shop for providing a worthy table of prizes. A very special mention must go to my Vice Captain Trevor Eccleston for combating the elements on the 1st tee ensuring that you all set off on time and with a smile on your face. Today has been memorable for so many reasons and I will put those memories alongside the other ones that you have all given to me during my year as your Club Captain”.
